Sheri, the parents cannot carry their young. Alas, the situation you describe sounds like a predator found them.
Traditional Stories for Children
I can tell you that like Kate said, predators take many young birds.. Raccoons, snakes and other predatory birds take the balance of tree nested birds and ground nesters like quail etc are taken by coyotes in the Southeast, which are hurting their numbers significantly.
My dogs found a nest, is there anything I can do to protect the nest from them. One baby fell out but I put it back in. Would hate to see it happen again. OK so the birds keep pushing the babies out of the nest so what I did was took a bucket with a towel and a nesting in there and placed it by the old nest the parents are flying around it will they find it? Jeanette, the parents can find it. I have placed the bucket closers to the hole in the tree, and I have seen them go nine and out.
What can I do for a more permanent place? So if I place it away from the old spot they will find their babies? Last weekend we had 2 chickadees hollowing out a nest in a tree stump on our campground site in Carver, MA. This weekend we saw they have 4 eggs Sunday in the nest. Not sure if momma will lay anymore this week while we are gone, but will see on Friday when we return.
We should be able to figure out when they will hatch based on the number of eggs on Friday I hope. After they hatch and fledge, will the parents stay at the nest? We want to keep tabs on our little feathered friends. Should I put out suet cakes near the nesting area? After the eggs hatch the parents will be very busy feeding the young in the nest.
After the young fly the family will stay nearby for a few days and then explore further. Help, I rescued a baby chickadee. My friends cat ran the parents away or something? The one I have was trying to fly, but when I shined a flashlight in on the others they didt look so well, in fact Im certain a couple of them were deceased. So Heartbreaking! So o have the one. He seems spunky and so friendly.
If that. What should I do? I apologize for the heartbreaking story but at least I was able to save this baby. Any tips? Pamela, if you know where the nest is — or was — put the baby chickadee in a bush or on a hidden branch near the nest, or even in the nest. The parents will find it and feed it. After you put it there leave the area for many hours. Has anyone had a Blackcapped chickadee build her nest on the ground?

I discovered a nest with four eggs while weeding in my perrenial flowerbed. All four eggs have hatched and are babies are four days old now. It seems so dangerous…. Have not seen chickadees at the bluebird box for weeks, so just now looked inside. I watched on and off for an hour from inside the house — no adult birds in sight. Would the eggs hatch and the parents abandon nest? I watch the next box daily from our porch.
So I see the box frequently throughout the day. In the spring there was lots of daily activity as they built their nest in this bluebird box. Is there a certain time of day that they bring food to their young? Ginger, wait and watch. If the parents saw you at the box they will wait until the coast is clear. The babies have to eat several times an hour.
They would not be alive at all if their parents had been gone for weeks.

Nesting birds are very secretive. We have lived in our house for 11 years now. There is a birdhouse attached to the house outside our kitchen window. No birds have ever nested in it while we have lived here until this year when chickadees took it up a few weeks ago. So adorable! I hope they all made it!
5 Things You Need to Know About Fledglings
We had a chickadee nest in our birdhouse on the balcony. It was fun watching the parents fly back and forth to feed the young. They even ate out of our hands. After the fledglings left the nest we only saw them for one more day and they were gone. Really miss them!

I had a chickadee mother build her nest in my porch eves in view of my TV chair and got to watch the whole brooding period up until this afternoon. There were four eggs and four nestlings grew to maturity. Today one flew to the next eve, looked forlorn and fluttered back to the nest eve and back into the nest. I have seen 3 Robin broods fledge to the porch floor usually one at a time over two or three days and then hop to the treeline.
I was waiting for the same thing from the chickadees but they seemed about two or three days late on fledging. Two were out of the nest several times today but would hop back in and nap. Finally, in the time it took to turn on the AC and use the restroom I came back into the livingroom to find all four fledglings gone. My question, not having seen chickadees fledge like the robins, is would a parent lead the four out in one group? The mother robin is on her third brood right now in the same nest from last year. Anyone out there have any thoughts about this chickadee brood?
Jim D. As you have seen, chickadees use a different technique. Their nests are big enough to hold every one. I have never seen chickadees fledge but it is possible the parents led them to safety or to food. When the young are hungry they follow their parents. I know the fledglings will follow their parents because I did see the last of four robin fledglings perched on the nest looking scared and lonely.
If neighbor dog scared it accidentally in bush I. Have a family nesting in a decorative bird house on my deck!
