We're looking after a baby sparrow who recently fell from her nest. She's almost a fledgling (I think) and will soon need mealworms and/or dried crickets. Was wondering if anyone had any or, perhaps, knew where I could find some?

Kat, you can try the True Value garden center or Johnson's Feed in Alpine, both of which may have packaged meal worms for chickens. It's worth calling them to ask. You could also order some online from Tractor Supply, or hit up the Fort Stockton store in person.
Anecdotally, we had great success a few years ago feeding an infant starling moistened dry dog food with a couple pulverized Tums mixed in. The bird flourished and lived happily with a friend for several years.
