LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- This is the time of year that several birds are being born, leaving many of us wondering what we should do if we happen to see one on its own.
THV 11 spoke with the Education Division at Arkansas Game and Fish, and they were able to clear up some old myths about what we should and should not do when we see a baby bird trying to survive on their own.
"We are just not good bird parents, and so the chances of a baby bird living through that are very, very slim. So, if you see a baby bird on the ground, you can't see its nest or where you need to put it back, then you need to just leave it alone," explained Arlene Green with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.
Green also said if you do happen to see the nest nearby, it is okay to place the baby bird back in its nest.
