I live in an apartment and about a month ago birds started nesting in the bathroom exhaust vent. I promptly requested maintenance to remove the nest and install a bird proof cover, before the birds started laying eggs. Unfortunately it took a month for them to get the work done, and by that time the birds eggs had hatched. I missed the maintenance guy but a few minutes. When I returned home I found three young starlings and the remains of their nest on the ground, a drop of about ten feet, fortunately to grass below. The chicks eyes were not even open and they barely had any feathers. I was horrified anyone could be so heartless as to just pluck them out of the vent and throw them to the ground. Since I requested the work, I felt responsible, eventhough I requested it well in advance which would have prevented this disaster. I contacted Fellow Mortals and they had me bring the chicks in. They described them as in critical condition and said they had just recently hatched. The woman I spoke with at Fellow Mortals was very friendly and returned my calls promptly. I was glad they were willing to take the birds in, eventhough they were just three baby Starlings. They could have easily turned them away as I'm sure there are thousands of Starlings born every year, but they didn't. They were willing to make the effort to attempt to save these three young fragile lives. I really appreciated that. I would highly recommend Fellow Mortals to anyone who finds an orphaned or injured animal. Call them right away and they will tell you what to do. And PLEASE, do make a donation of cash or other items they might need. They are a wonderful organization and doing the world a great service!
