I commend you for your care of the bird, but you had to know something bad would happen if you had to smuggle the bird in.

regardless of whatever bad happens, OP is still an incredibly good and benevolent person. I admire people who aren't afraid to show heart.

I'm surprised the OP didn't think of handing the baby bird to an animal rescue charity as an easier and better option.

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 heal

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.

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.

OP, should just tell them and offer to take a drug test. Problem solved... unless they are on some other drug.

19 why would you think, sitting and reading in Thailand, that 50% of wall street workers are needle using junkies? Somebody watches too many bad movies, I think.

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.

43. and please do not insinuate that people who aren't in the States have no clue about anything except through movies.

48/49: Point taken, and I apologized in response to your private message. But as I stated there, I doubt your stats regarding brokers on the needle. Again, sorry.

This actually made me happy to read. Not because of the unfortunate complications, but from how incredibly sweet you are, OP! I hope the situation is handled well!

Nice to know you have a big heart but seriously, seeing someone push a syringe toward their arm, the last thing I'd think was that they were feeding a baby bird...

37 anytime I've needed a syringe to give a cat medicine, for example, I just get a syringe without a needle from the pharmacist or vet.

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!
