This past spring this baby blue jay, likely having fallen from his nest, was brought into the Wildlife Clinic at the Schuylkill Center of Environmental Education. The people who found him couldn’t locate the nest to return him, and so they brought him to the clinic. For the next few weeks, this little blue jay has had many people involved in his care, from dedicated volunteers to our wildlife rehabilitators. Raising a songbird baby can be a real challenge, with a particular diet, a special nest to ensure his legs grow straight, and regular feedings until he’s old enough to feed himself. At the clinic we are careful to make sure the blue jay does not become tame or imprinted, so he can be released into the wild once he’s old enough.
