What to Do If You Find a Baby Bird Out of Its Nest This Summer

This helpful guide explains what to do with a lost baby bird, as well as how to escape from dromaeosaurs.

Baby Bird

For plenty of us, summer means upping your time spent in the great outdoors, reveling in the splendor of nature. Sometimes, though, nature can get really sad — and you don’t get much sadder than a baby bird that’s fallen from its nest. If there’s one thing worse than seeing the poor thing, it’s the helpless feeling of not knowing what to do with it to improve the situation. That, and the secret fear that the bird might actually be a dinosaur. Luckily, Rosemary Mosco of Bird and Moon comics offers an easy-to-digest cartoon primer that can put all your doubts on the subject to rest and ensure that you’re prepared to be a hero to birds everywhere. Or, y’know, at least in your backyard.

Check out the source below for a bigger image and more of Rosco’s excellent cartoons and nature charts — many of which you will recognize as “That thing you saw on Tumblr that one time and it made you giggle.” Like, for example, this.
