I wonder if I can have some advice regarding a young rook with pins on the feathers found on the ground near us. We attempted to reunite the bird with its parents, which hasn’t been successful. The bird is not eating by itself and still needs to be fed. The animal is otherwise strong and stands tall, although it trips over a lot. He or she has attempted a couple of flights, which always end in a crash landing. Can you please advise what to do next?
