Years ago a pair of Barn Swallows ;built a nest up against the eaves of our house. It fell down, when the young were less than half grown. I placed them in a shoe box and put it on a ledge of the porch, about eight feet below where the next had originally been built. The adults went right on feeding the young as if nothing had happened, and they all fledged successfully.

If the parents are still around and interested in the fledgling, let it be and just don’t let any pets out for awhile. Many birds fledge before they can fly adequately. As long as the parents feed it, nature will take its course.
That’s assuming it’s fully feathered. If not, call the Wildlife Care Center.

I found a baby junco in the dog's waterdish outsid, just floating but alive. Feathers were wet, so I put it in a flower pot. The parents know the bird is alive, but it is too young to fly and I cannot find the nest. What do I do?
