Susan knew that if she left the chick there, he wouldn’t survive alone, so she decided to try to save him.

Taking care of a baby bird isn’t easy, though. For the first two weeks, Susan had to feed the bird every 20-30 minutes from sunrise to sunset.

But she also realized that Klinger was domesticated now. He was completely unprepared for life in the wild and wouldn’t survive on his own.
