This topic of rescuing vagrant birds comes up anytime a bird sticks around and declines in health or faces dire circumstances due weather. It's a wild bird doing what wild birds do and may succumb to the elements, but that's the risk in being a vagrant. This may seem cold, but leaving wild things wild is important.
