    Just went back from countryside with some buds, and while we're picking up oranges & bananas from one of my buddy's uncle owned small-scale plantation, I stumble upon this bird, walking cluelessly under the tree..

    I approach and it shows no response..
    When I get close to it, I just realized it has no eyes.. :(

    So yeah, since I'm afraid it'll be harmed by other creatures or guys there, so I carefully put it inside small cardboard box and take it home. I try to fed it with corn and try to get it to eat the corn pieces from my palm, but it's kinda nervous. I totally got no clue how to take care of a handicapped avian before, especially the blind one.. >__>

    But damn, I just can't let it die, can I? :( 
    Any advices, please?

    Agreed. Vet is definitely the way to go, not an internet message board.

    Unless it's a vetinary internet message board. Here you'll just get told to stick it in her pooper.

    First up, Caine, let me say that I'm immensely proud of you for rescuing the poor creature from certain harm. The next step, as the others have said, is to get it to a vet as soon as you can. Once you perform that action, I think you can safely say you've done everything in your power to assist. :thumb

    I'm proud of you Caine. A lot of people would have just walked away and let the bird to die. Here's a site that can help:

    The other option is to build it a small cage and keep feeding and watering it. Looks like a genetic malformation, not an injury. It's magically survived this long. If left to the wild it will die. Much respect for saving the bird.

    Agreed, call a vet. Otherwise it will die. It could have a been am injury when the bird was a bit younger otherwise it might not have survived this long either.
