Re: Unwell starling

If you can't catch the bird, don't keep trying - as this will add stress to an already poorly bird. It might turn up again in the next couple of days - they do sometimes. Just make sure the Starling has plenty of water and food when the rest of the gang aren't around. The best you can do is to make ...
