    Default Rescued baby lorikeet

    I just had a young lorikeet fly into our window. It doesn't seem to be injured however it appears to be too young to fly properly.

    I already have my own pet lorikeet so I know how to care for a lorikeet, however I'm unsure if this one is able to feed itself or if I will need to feed it. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1451252626.505525.jpg

    Any tips? How old do you think it is?

    Call the local wildlife rescuer number. They will be able to tell you what is best.

    Default Rescued baby lorikeet

    I took a lorikeet that flew into our window to the emergency vet and they handled it, it was too injured so had to be put down but they would have called the appropriate rescue otherwise.

    I would give the local/emergency vet a call. Our old vet would take in injured wildlife.

    As a vet I would say that a wildlife carer is a better option than a vet. A vet will pass it to a carer anyway and quite often carers may give you advice that you can do at home to try and get the bird back to mum and dad that vets don't have the knowledge of.
    Wildlife carers work 24/7 so never be afraid to call them.
