So I have to hear this bird die slowly begging for help.

Man....this sucks.


A good thing - it shouldn't take but another day or so.


And these cries become a call to feast for another predator. This is how nature works. Should be over by Monday

Actually, good news. I went out and right when I went out I saw his parent fly away from the nest after a noisy feeding.

He's actually a JAY. lol, no wonder. He's just a little noisy butthole.

Good news.

So the nest is like 30 feet up in a tree I can't reach. The parents are gone. I haven't really seen them for a couple days. And he's just wearing himself out. Told the expert about it, and he said it sounds like it's unfortunately abandoned.

So I have to hear this bird die slowly begging for help.

Man....this sucks.


If you could reach that high, you could take the nest down and feed it. Oh this is just heart wrenching! I don't know who you called. Was it a wildlife rescue group?

So you weren't needed then? Imagine that.

Nature finds a way.

I had an attic conversion as a bedroom as a teenager and you know teenagers like to sleep. At 5am when the chicks started tweeting in the roof space somewhere I was really p1ssed, by 5.15 I had punched a hole in the wall and pushed the cat through. By 5.30 I was fast asleep in silence.

No, it's cool, I figured it out.

He's just a noisy little butthole JAY. His "Dad" or whoever, was the same one pecking at the mirrors on my car like a nutcase.

Really happy now. False alarm.

Leave it alone and quit poking your nose into the natural order of things like an average human.

Nature isn't liking for your sympathy or help.


I rescued a hummingbird that was stuck in my garage today. I don't know if she was grateful for my help, but at least she is alive. I guess I should have just let nature take it's course...?


Maybe there is a difference in your story and th OP?

Bird in your domain? Sure, help it find an exit.

Bird in it's own domain? Maybe just let it happen.

My point was that nature isn't waiting around for humans to save it. Save that bird and you may deprive a snake of his next meal.

Where do you believe the line is between helping and interfering?



Hmmm... I suppose there is a line and that is where mine is now that you put it that way. She was in a very human domain where she should not be so I got her out.

I happen to have a 5 foot python and two tarantulas, one being a birdeater size so i got a whole plethora of food chain things going on in my house but my first reaction to seeing a nest and no momma wasn't free snake or spider food, it was wondering if they would live. Its a baby, helpless on its own and if abandoned can still be saved by us ruthless heartless humans.

As a happy side note, with some work, you can sort of semi-tame wild blue jays. You might not be able to pet them, but you can generally get them to land on the porch rail and sit by you for some small bribery, like Fritos.

you have a good heart


I've had a Haitian Brown, a Rose Haired and a Rose Boa.

Still not going to deprive others of their chance. Even if a worm gets to eat from the carcass of that dead baby bird, is it not " natural"

Your snakes and spider are not living their true potential. They live the life you make them. Not natural.

Are your spiders not intelligent? In that intelligence do you not recognize boredom? I did. Like an elephant in a zoo my Haitian Brown came to realize the boundary of her cage then sank into what can only be described as depression. She ate less, stopped exploring her cage and just sat.

Cages are no place for any creature. And we anthropomorphize everything. This is a uniquely human taught.

I believe that you did the right thing.

My grandparents used a natural solution for bothersome birds and it also helps curb rodents.

They had blacksnakes in and around their house. My uncle would catch them wherever he could find them and take them to their house to release them. They had them in their basement and under their porches and in the barn.

A blacksnake will go right up a wall to get to that meal waiting in the nest.

Were birds created before Man? If so, they're higher up on God's priority list than we are.
