Huge kudos to all who try to rescue wild critters, whether voluntarily or not. RE: baby robins or other songbirds, here's some advice:

Default sorry....

sorry it took so long to post an update, however, i have very sad news. the baby did not make it through the night. he was kept warm and i did feed him and give water but i now know that he was injured and that was what did him in. my neighbors cats got to him and that is why she tossed him over my carport wall. i was very upset but knowing that his last moments were in comfort and peace instead of out in the wild, tangled up in brush gives me solace. poor little guy. thank you though for your help, sorry it didn't have a happy ending.

How beautiful to know that people care so much. My husband always cracks up at me watching "Animal Cops" on TV. It makes my day to see animals who have suffered being loved and brought back to health.

My own "happy story" is this: I was riding my horse one night, on the roads, and came upon this teeny little kitten, about 4 weeks old and most definitely still nursing at that age. I dismounted from my horse, tucked the little guy in a mailbox (it was not a hot day) continued on a short ride and on the way back picked him up and rode home. I named him and fed him for two weeks, then placed an ad in the paper with a cute story of his rescue. I must have had 10 calls from people wanting him. A dad and his little girl came out to get him finally.
