    It is not clear to me if the sparrow thinks it is a dog or a human. Birds don't know what they are at birth, so they imprint on whatever they see first. In nature, it is common for some birds to lay eggs in another bird species' nests. Cowbirds and cuckoos do this. When the eggs hatch, the chicks think they are the same as the mother bird. Rescued birds commonly imprint on humans. If this bird had its eyes closed when rescued and saw the dog first, it would think it is a dog. Maybe because the dog is gone now, it might have re-imprinted on the human that takes care of it. I've never heard of a case of a bird imprinting then changing. You might be on to something that you are not aware of even. One bit of caution, birds often get infected with mites, which will, in turn, get into your hair, couch, any type of bedding, and the bird's nest. Be prepared in advance. They multiply very quickly. Don't be afraid to spend some money on the best products. Speak to the veterinarian for extra advice.

    'The reason why I can legally keep him is because he's a non-native species to California.' So if the vet says the animal is not releasable, but it's also a native species, it cannot be legally adopted and kept, so they euthanize it no matter if someone would be willing to adopt? I really hope that's not how it works...

      @Dori Muranyi Art He certainly does! All the other burrowing owls would dive into their burrow when people came in. And you had to clean his enclosure very carefully and be aware of where he was because he'd attack the broom on occasion, haha! XD If I remember right, he was unreleasable because he had imprinted on people and had some kind of upper beak condition that required regular maintenance. And you're welcome!

      It depends on the facility and whether or not they have access to wildlife centers with the space and licensure for permanent residents. Wasn't in California, but I used to volunteer for a wildlife center that keeps unreleasable animals and uses the more docile ones and hand-raised babies (hand-raised due to unreleasability) as animal ambassadors at various outdoor expos. My favorite was a burrowing owl who would get all angry and poof himself up at caretakers in his enclosure unless they petted him.

    In Spring, we have young starlings scream to their mother to be fed. I witnessed a tiny sparrow repeatedly go to the feeder and pick out food and go feed this baby starling, which was five times larger than him. Inter species kindness. Or maybe maternal instincts.
