Do birds have feelings? As in emotional feelings? The baby bird isn't doing so well, in that I think it might have kind of died. One of the adult birds stood next the nest for most of the day, staring glumly at the listless body - shooing away flies. It made me sad, and I said sorry through the double glazed window. Three babies down to none. I hope the magpies come back to the nest and have warmer weather next time they try to have bird babies.
