It is not advised that you do. Please, don't feed baby birds that are in a nest.

If the mother witnesses or smells human presence in the nest she can actually abandon the chicks to die of cold or starvation. Aside from that, chicks can only really eat "mashed" food, basically food that has been chewed and regurgitated by their mother. By feeding the chicks you risk causing them to choke to death.

Never disturb nesting birds. You can however leave out soft, chopped fruit in your garden, such as grapes, pear, banana and apple. Then the mother will soften this and regurgitate it for her chicks. Please don't leave bread for chicks, because it can become trapped in their digestive tracts and probably kill them.

If however you notice the mother has not returned to the nest for a day or so, then you can call animal services to investigate and possibly rescue the chicks. Unfortunately a lot of mother birds are killed by cats, dogs, wolves or foxes while seeking food for their chicks.

yes but its better for a mother bird to do it, you are not a mother bird, if you do find an abandoned baby bird, make sure it is abandoned and if it is, take it to the vets, they will do a better job of caring and feeding it than you

A baby bird fell out of the nest and the mother and father are feeding it still What should you do?

If the bird is still laying there and the mother/father is still feeding the baby bird, the bird must have just fell out of the nest and there isn't anything wrong with it. One of the parents will get it to its nest or get it to a safe place and take care of it. If the parent(s) do not want anything to do with it then the bird is sick and not eating, they just give up. You should place the bird in a warm shoe box with hay and make sugar water and feed that to the bird by using a dropper. You don't want to feed it to much.

What should you feed baby parrots?

Baby parrots should be hand raised either by a qualified breeder, or someone who is familiar with the anatomy of birds. Baby birds are fed by tube injection of soft food. Since birds hold a quantity of food in an area called "the crop", it is vital to not over feed baby birds. Yet baby parrots need highly nutritious food to thrive. If you find a baby parrot in the wild that has gone from the nest too early, try to return the bird to the nest, or take the bird to a wildlife rehabilitator, an exotic animal vet, or consult a local zoo or bird rescue group. Please do not try to feed a baby parrot unless you have experience doing so.
