Default Not a budgie, but rest in peace little babies.

There are tons of bird nests in the overhang roof at work, there are holes in it, so birds build their nests in there. a co-worker of mine, was sitting outside on her break eating her lunch when one of the babies fell onto the sidewalk, instantly dying. we felt so bad for it, and we had no place to bury it at work, so we had to take it to the dumpster (we feel even worse for that!!!! we wanted to bury it, but had no place to)
then today, yet another precious baby fell. it was still alive when it was on the ground. someone kicked at it too! i went out and got so mad at them! i picked up the baby, he was gasping for air, and i couldn't do anything for him, my co worker and i were too scared to put him out of his misery, we had no idea what to do with this poor thing. i kept whispering little things to him and a few moments later, he died in my hands. i wanted to cry so bad. this poor little thing had fuzz on his head, and was just barely starting to get feathers in. he was bigger than a parakeet, so i'm not sure what type of bird he was, and he was just a baby. it made me want to go home and love up my budgies. i still feel very bad for those two birds and i hope that no more go through the same fate. i'm not a religious person, but i do ask you keep them in your prayers, as it was very sad what happened. we would go outside and hear the baby birds peeping and chirping all day, and it was very sad for us to see what happened to the two of them.

Thats so sad - I can totally understand your heartbreak.

I used to work in an office in a big victorian building with walled gardens. We had lots of birds in the garden. One year a duck nested on top of the wall and there were 16 eggs! We could look right down on the nest from our window. It was almost in touching distance.

It was souch a lovely distraction during a busy working day.

One morning the eggs hatched and the duck started to try and lead them to water - but she had nested miles away from any (apparently Mallards can nest in stupid places). The little ducklings all jumped 10 feet down from the wall safely, but as the mum lead them away they were followed by crows and magpies... I know it was just nature, but it was awful. We called the RSPCA and they said they would try and come over..

Our bosses wouldn't let us go out to rescue them because there was work to be done, and by the afternoon they were gone.

RIP Baby Birds...

AWWW! I am sorry for all the baby birds! Rip!

Yesterday again, my friend and I were walking thought the school which is separated ino many different buildings (1-2 grade building ect.). As we were walking to the gym my friend sees a leaf, and thinks its a dead bird. We continue walking, and then she really does see a dead bird. The poor thing was a house sparrow (again) that was just about to fledge. He must have gotten in a fight, because there were gaping wounds in his back. Like he was pecked to death. We placed her (yes, it was a her, she had no black face markings) onto a flowering bush, covered her with leaves, and placed flowers on top. Rip! This one too, lived in a building nest.

Aww poor thing! i tried to save 7 babies last year, though only four made it, the mortality rate in hand fed outside birds is high. I did good.
It was most likely a robin. The last of the birds i was saving last year had an extremely broken and swollen beak. He was sitting next to his dead sibling in the grass. Though he did not make it, his beak was so swollen that i doubt he would have ever been able to eat on his own even if he did make it to adulthood. There was a gigantic bloody scab covering his nostrils so he had to breath with his mouth which made hand feeding harder..

That was very sad to hear/read. R.I.P poor birdies.
And that someone kicked one of them, some people are so cruel, idiots.
