Website of the Day
Belize Bird Rescue is a non-profit rescue, rehabilitation and release centre for indigenous birds Belize, particularly parrots. The centre has implemented an education programme and awareness campaign throughout the country, aimed particularly at reversing the decline in parrot numbers due to the illegal pet trade and destruction of nest sites through illegal logging.
Three tiny green parrot babies, less than 48hrs old

These tiny, tiny babies were rescued from a felled tree by a BTL Telcoms engineer in Corozal. He did a truly fabulous job of keeping them warm and safe all the way to his home in Dangriga. His wife Arshellie immediately contacted BBR, and Sarah and Nancy headed down to Dangriga to meet the wonderful family and their precious charges.

From a description of birds in the area of fallen nest, they are likely to be yellow loreds. They are only hours old: the smallest weighs 10g.

Nancy warmed food and Sarah showed Arshellie and her young daughter how delicate the feeding process is. Arshellie’s little girl cried real tears when the babies left her home, but she knows it’s the best thing and they're in good hands.

2g when he hatched. So very, very tiny.

After 200 miles of travelling, they are safely tucked in a warm 'nest', so far doing well: eating, begging and pooping as they should do. Fantastic job everyone and thank you to Arshellie and her family for caring for these amazing creatures.

In this instance re-nesting wasn't an option for these birds. But if you ever find baby birds, please follow this guide, or call us asap on (Belize) 610 0400 or the Wildlife Hotline on (+501) 605 8888 for help and advice. (you can download full version from the Resources page of our website)
