Urgent! Abandoned Nest In Backyard!!

We noticed a few weeks ago that a finch had built a nest in the backyard under the awning on the porch. We asked around for help on what to do with the nest and found out it was against the law to move it or bother the eggs. So we let it be and last week five little chicks popped up and the mother and father were feeding and guarding the nest every day.

It's been over two days since we've seen either parent and I am afraid the chick are in bad shape. Is there anyone we could call to help us? Animal Services wasn't answering their phones yesterday.

Try the Audubon Society. Might be tricky getting them on a Sunday though.

Thanks so much for this. I was on google all day yesterday exhausting myself looking for resources in the area. Through the Audubon Society general website I was able to look up all centers in CA and we have one here in San Luis Obispo County!!! Amazing!

I had no idea and it didn't come up once when I googled for help!! You're a birdy lifesaver.

thank you thank you thank you.
