They were also very hungry. I was so tempted to stuff anything -- meat scraps, peanut butter -- into their gaping maws. As it turns out, it's a good thing I resisted the urge; it's very easy to choke or drown a baby bird if you don't know what you're doing. Apparently it's okay to dribble a very small amount of water or Gatorade on the corners of their beaks to keep them from getting too dehydrated.
