Questions and Answers about Wild Birds

Question of the week:

Can a bird's feet stick to metal perches?

A. There are rumors of this happening but I have never seen any documentation to support it. A birds feet are mostly tough tendons, with little soft flesh to stick to a perch. In the very unlikely event that you find a bird in this predicament, just pour a little warm water on his feet (not boiling, just a little warm).
