Disposal of larvae in newborn birds

Hi there! Removing larvae from baby birds, like the 2 Dubois’s Seedeater you mentioned, can be a tricky process.

I suggest contacting a professional bird veterinarian or bird rehabilitator that specializes in this kind of work.

They will be able to provide advice and assistance on safely and humanely removing the larvae. As a precaution, it is important to make sure the birds are given a thorough physical exam before attempting to remove any larvae.

Doing this will help ensure that the birds are healthy enough to be handled and that the removal process is done with minimal discomfort to the birds. Best of luck!
