My father found a baby robin laying in the driveway yeserday morning, on his way to work. It fell out of the walnut tree in our back yard (right by our driveway).
So then, I began feeding it bugs in from our yard like crickets and small black flies. We let it stay overnight since a storm was heading our direction. We thought about putting it back in its nest, but the nest it fell out of is sagging and wet from the rain. Plus, the mother robin stopped calling for it. She was calling for it yesterday and now stopped.
The problem is that we had a drought and can't find very many earthworms in the ground. Pretty much pieces of balona have been the substitute for worms for the robin to eat. Any tips on what else to have it eat? Will night crawlers be safe for it?
