A mama will not take back a cold baby because she thinks he may be sick and doesn't want to make her other babies sick. Also, you don't want to feed a cold baby. I had high hopes of the mama coming back for him, but it never happened. There's a good chance that something happened to the mama and this little guy was hungry and started crawling around in the nest looking for food and fell out of the nest. He's about three to four weeks old and has a great set of lungs on him!
I took him to a very nice lady that works with the wildlife rescue group that I've been dealing with for over twenty years. I would love to have raised him, but here lately I don't have the time to give him. He will need around the clock feedings, etc.. I will be going back to visit him and I'll be sure to carry my handy camera. :)
Remember to help all creatures big or small. Good deeds aren't always convenient. :)
