Spring has sprung, which means that baby birds will soon be shoving their way out of their eggs and entering the big, bright, scary world. And some of those infant chicks will fall out of their nests, or be shoved out by their obnoxious siblings, or be rejected by their parents. What should you do if you happen upon a tiny adorable baby bird outside of its nest?

Step 1: DO NOT TOUCH IT.

Step 2: Refer to this handy comic drawn by one of our favorite internet webcomic illustrators Rosemary Mosco of Bird and Moon.
