Hi Ketan,

Unfortunately there is no way to know what happened just from your description. A Vet would have to examine the body and run tests. Since this was a wild bird you found, it would have been best to locate someone with wildlife experience. Wild birds can be very hard to keep in captivity due to their special diet needs. There may have been something wrong it it from the beginning, which made the parents abandon it. I’m sorry for your loss.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
