What if there is a fledgling in an unsafe situation?
If you find a fledgling that is healthy and does not require intervention but is in a roadway or other unsafe place, you can carefully move or herd the baby to an area of landscaping where it will be more camouflaged from predators and out of traffic. Do not place them in a tree or on an elevated surface, the ground is the safest place for fledglings. If there are cats prowling around, turn on a sprinkler! Birds love water, but we know that cats do not!
