Meet Chocopie, an Indian treepie. Few days back I found her stuck between the fencing in my garden, as she fell off her nest. I saw crows hovering around her as her mother was trying to protect her. By the time anything bad could have happened I rescued her and examined her if she was hurt, that’s when I noticed that she was not able to fly as she is just a new born baby bird, after which I decided to keep her safe. An Indian treepie is afraid of humans than anyone else, that’s why her mother was not able to come closer and watch her child. Now that I knew I had to keep her with me till she could fly again and get back to her parents, I started taking care of her by feeding her with grape juice and watermelon juice, she is so young that I had to open her beak to feed her with a dropper, it also came to my mind that the juice I’m feeding her was not enough. Meanwhile her mother was monitoring each and every activity from the distance. I thought she might come and take her back. So I let her free in open. Her mother monitored from distance, when she was assured that this place is safe she came by and fed her, as the baby was not able to fly, she couldn't take her back. Since then a new chapter began in my life. Every day I feed her juice through dropper now she has learnt how to eat, as soon as she sees the dropper, she opens up her beak herself. Then I take her out, let her stand in open and wait for her mother. She calls her mother within 3-4 minutes, her mother responds from distance. First she assures that the place is safe, then she comes by and feed her. Whole day I let her free in open, so that her mother is able to feed her time to time. Whenever she is afraid of us and doesn’t wants to come near, I feed the baby bird with juice and water so that she is not starved.
