I have found a rook fledgling on the ground. Will the parents come back and feed?

You are here:

Rook fledglings, unlike carrion crows, found on the ground need help, as they will not be fed by their parents. If it is safe and the fledgling is uninjured and healthy, then try to get the bird onto a tree branch and observe from a safe distance to ensure that his or her parents attend. If the parents are not coming back within two hours to feed the youngster, then please secure the bird and bring it to an experienced corvid friendly bird rescue, where the bird will be raised amongst his own kind.
