Ok - this may sound off the wall and some may get mad about this BUT - This is the way it is ..... Late last summer someone brought my daughter a baby robin . She didn't want it but it was like 2 weeks old and the person just left it there with her . So she fed it and took care of it and here she is today with a robin that needs to go but won't !!! It has been living with her in her apartment in a cage . Today she tried to release it . She set it out in a quiet place in the open - it flattened itself out and watched her all the time . One fellow robin came by it and tried to make friends - it did not respond - another came by and talk to it and then jumped on it and pecked it in the head . He got scared and flew into my daughters arms . She tried again and it just flew back to her hands . She brought it home . She feels as though if she just left it there it would die and I think she is right . I suggested that she try this every day - he might get some bearings . She did say that he is smaller than the other robins - probably due to being caged . I feel bad for her because she knows that it is not right to keep it and I feel sorry for the robin because he doesn't know what to do . Anyone have any GOOD suggestions on what she should do ? She has tried and tried to get the attention of any wildlife rehabilitator and they are not interested . I guess a little robin is not worth the effort to them . She wants him to be free but not dead !!!!!
