Hello everyone! My friend rescued this bird and we're trying to look after it (it was caught by a cat) as I posted on the other thread.

Would anyone we able to tell us what it is? I thought mousebird but I am not certain. We are in the KZN province, South Africa.

Thank you!

Its a baby mousebird bird. Hows the baby doing? Must keep baby warm and mousebirds are fruit eating birds. You can try him with some pawpaw to start off with. If he has been caught by a cat he might be injured? I am also in KZN. I rescue a lot of mousebirds in and around the area. I am also a drop off point for CROW. You can give me a call if you need assistance 0728010606.

Not sure what happened but these alerts have just shown me that my response didn't load...
Unfortunately the babe didn't make it, my friend woke up to him flying over the rainbow bridge. Turns out there was a cat scratch beneath the wing :crycry:
