The Raven Diaries Part II

The first night I sat with the raven in my lap wondering how it could have survived that fifty foot fall. The bird seemed a little too passive and I began to wonder about internal injuries, West Nile or Bird Flue. The next day I spent most of my lunch time at work researching West Nile symptoms and treatment for birds on the computer. There was not much information except that ravens are highly susceptible to West Nile with a 90% mortality rate.

But when I got home most of my fears and apprehensions were relieved. The little raven was pretty active and hungry. Acting like a normal displaced bird, it took one day to bond to me for food. I fed it a mixture of bread soaked in it raw eggs, chicken, and fruit. I gave it an eye dropper of water since its poop is so watery. I knew it needed a lot of fluid. Watching the parents outside at the watering hole preparing the food they took up to their nest I figured I couldn’t be that wrong. I lay the eyedropper full of water on the floor of the raven’s mouth and let it suck down the fluid drop at a time.

  1. I can’t believe this story! What a sweet little bird. You remind me of my mother, not only does she have 3 dogs, 2 cats, a bunny and a rescued cockstoo/poo she also has a wild Blue Jay she nursed back to health. 3-4 years later she still calls him down from the tree to get his daily peanut.

    I want a goat one day, they are adorable, but aren’t they destructive by default? I also want a miniature horse one day…. One day when I have a big enough yard.

    • I too raised a blue jay that the cats brought in when it was very young. I might include that story someday.
      When I would come home d down the long driveway, the dogs would run up to lead me home and above them would fly the jay to greet me.
