Those are normal looking. Bird's will tend to rid of their young if the young come in contact with any other bird species, even human's. If the scent
is on them the mother bird won't care for them.
Not TRUE at all. You can ALWAYS put baby birds back into their nests and the parents WILL care for them, as long as they are healthy and simply fell
out of the nest. Which happens.
I have rehabbed wildlife, mostly birds, for a very long time.
Robins eat worms. Worms live underground and come up with the rain. Radioactive particulates in the rain, hit the ground where all the worms live.
Earth worms then passed on from the parents to feed the very delicate young equals Instant death.
Of course this is just speculation BUT, birds are a huge environmental indicator species.

clarify that putting "healthy" baby birds back into a nest , the parents will take care of them.
