Today, I was accused of shooting drugs at work. I was only feeding a baby bird that was tucked into my arm using a medicine syringe. I've been smuggling it to work because it has to eat every 2 hours or it will starve. Now everyone there thinks I'm a hardcore dope fiend. FML

I've done that before with a baby bird. A lot of rescue shelters will not take in birds, I tried all the local rescues and even some bird rescues and they said no.


I did this with a baby bird also. I brought him into work and kept him in his nestbox in the ladies room (it was a pet store and the bathroom was private). My woman co-manager knew and kept it on the down low. Our boss, being a guy, had no idea. I would simply "use the bathroom" every 2 hours or so to quickly fill his belly (it only takes about 2 minutes). Not one of my proudest moments, but I couldn't let him just die, and the ungrateful little bastard blue jay grew into a strong healthy bird. unlike all the other birds I have reared, he never came back even once after being set free. But it's ok... Glad he got a chance at life.


So all you Americans know- raising wild baby birds without permits can land you in jail or with a $10,000 fine. Migratory Bird Treaty Act protects virtually all native species (only starlings, house sparrows and pigeons are except as they were introduced), and if a wildlife officer gets wind of that bird you can be in serious legal trouble. It's great to see so many kind hearted people, but unless you have no other options you should take the bird to a wildlife rehabilitation center. If you can't find one, ask your vet. Some vets may be certified and permitted too, or can direct you to who is.

Well, I'm not sure about work, but I always see someone doing this at school almost every single day... Wouldn't surprise me if there were people who did this at work too. Still, FYL OP. Try to explain it to them.

43. I was on holiday I Thailand a month ago and had updated my profile accordingly. Please ask someone where they are from before jumping to prejudicial conclusions.

But shouldn't they have at least heard, if not seen, the baby bird at some point? Even if OP kept it well hidden, baby birds (any baby, really) can be pretty freaking loud when they want mommy to feed them!
