  • What kind of nest do I have on my porch?I think I might have a hummingbird’s nest on my front door, in a wreath. The nest is small and composed of string and other small, flexible sticks. The nest is completely covered however, so I’m not sure if it is a hummingbird or not. Are there any other birds that build small nests that are covered

get a shoe box.. and old tshirt… and make it a nest…

when u want to feed it… u have to get bird seed and add watter to it.. and kind of smash it so it will get sticky and soft…

though i really dunno what hummingbirds eat.. u would have to look it up…

i know someone who has alot of birds .. and 3 parrots…

call the ASPCA! They can def. help! for now, make a small nest with old tee shirts, leaves, in a small box. Do you have hummingbird nectar? get an eyedropper and feed it a couple drops. try water now, if you don’t have any nectar!

I had the same thing happen once. We tried to give it nectar(sugar water) but it lost the will to live. It never would even try to drink it. They have a very fast metabolism, and if it will drink it, make sure that there is a constant supply of it. Hope it pulls through.

Sugar water mix in a four part water to one part sugar, try to feed from an eye dropper, if you can find the nest try returning it to the nest, some birds will still feed their young after handled by humans.

You cant. Call a wildlife rehabilitator ASAP. An untrained person cant keep one alive.

These sites explain all about what to do for orphan baby birds – – this is an excellent article – be sure to read down the entire page!
And this Yahoo Best Answer too –

I’ve got a lot of links to wildlife carers from a lot of countries on my site, at under "Wildlife Assistance" – just click on them all, click on your country and state, have a browse, ‘phone them and ask their advice.

Very very best of luck.
