This sweet little Killdeer was taken from its nesting area by a well meaning person thinking they were rescuing a lost turkey or chicken baby, They gave it to a friend to put in with her chickens or turkeys, She brought it to Agway where I was buying bird seed, wanting to know which it was turkey or chicken, when I saw it and told her what it was she wanted to know which pen she should put it in, I asked if she knew where the nesting site was so could return it but didnt and freind couldnt remember so I took it to Cornell University Animal Hospital ( 2 hours from my home) and they just sent me an update baby is doing great and has been transfered to a wild life rehab to be raised and released., WISH MORE PEOPLE KNEW NOT TO HELP BABY BIRDS MORE OFTEN THEN NOT THEY DONT NEED IT .
