Question young crow not leaving tree.

There's a young crow in the buddelia tree outside.
It's been there for a few hours now.
I went out and took some close up pics and video but can't post tonight.
Do I leave it completely.
Or in the morning if its still there call thr vets, they take wild birds.
Or do I feed it if its still there?.
Do they only eat meat?
I know you can have a semi tame wild bird.
And these are intelligent birds.
There is an adult hanging about nearby.
I won't do anything now as its nearly dark.

How old does it look? Is it a baby? They can eat a variety of things. Fruit and veggies they love, cat food, day old chicks if you can get any. I wouldn't know what to suggest. Is it injured?

if you've seen the parents hanging around, leave it alone but keep an eye out.

if not, then take it in, you can feed it wet cat food with berries and bugs and things they would find in the wild.

i am currently raising a baby bird myself again this year, and its not an easy job!

how old is he? like how feathered is he? you may have to feed him frequently if he is not very feathered. i dont know how often for crows, but i have a baby house sparrow right now and when i first got him he had to be fed every hour, then every 2 and now he is at every 3 and he is starting to wean and fledge.

He's almost fully fledged, has some cute fluffy feathers under his tail and chest.
He kept getting his wings caught in the tree.
Also didn't move too far when I went near.
Eyes were bright.
He seemed nervous to fly.
I wonder if.he had his 1st flight and ended up in the tree.

He sounds like a fledgling, they will find a spot and stay in it whilst the parents come and feed them, the parents then egg them on to start flying after them. They are clumsy at first but soon get the hang of it.

If there is an adult around then please leave him alone, you will do more harm than good if you try and take him in and a fledged bird will not take easily to hand-rearing by a human.

sounds like he may be having his first flight, just watch him for his parents. if they dont come then most definitely take him in

Quick update.
Boris as I nicknamed him was in the tree this morning.
However he has been out for a walk round and gobbled up loylts of yummy bugs and bits of food he found and is now back in the tree.
Parents are around but he just loves the tree.
I hope he has had a drink as its unseasonally hot here right now.
I'm still keeping Boris watch!

I'm gonna put the vids up in a mo.
When i put my kids to bed he had vacated the tree and I saw him legging it across the park outside my house with both parents flying past.
So I went with phone in hand to invesigate and found Boris in the process of climbing a horse chestnut tree.
He was at least 6' off the ground but he is small.
His wings dont seem long enough.
I wonder if he can fly at all?
I will be watching but I'm going away on Sat.
As long as his parents are around I think he'll do ok.

No. Only a little way!
He was still there this morning.
Ma n pa crow are hanging about looking after him.
It took them an hour to find him this morning even though he hadn't moved.
I'm gonna check on him later.
He's going up the tree at least.

I love the baby season. My favourite times in the wildlife rehab were feeding the baby corvids, such intelligent little monkeys lol One of them distracted me while the other stole my feeding tweezers once lol

They've moved on. I saw Boris fly today.
It was lovely.
