Found an injured, sick or orphaned bird?

Unfortunately, we are not a avian rehabilitation facility and, therefore, we do not have the licensing or resources to care for injured, sick and orphaned birds.

If you have found an injured, sick or orphaned bird, please first contact your local avian rehabilitation facility. Keep the bird in a dark box (appropriate to the size of the bird) in a quiet place with little human contact (to reduce stress).

For more information about what to do and how to determine if the bird needs help, please consult this flowchart: http://www.rowenawildlifeclinic.org/jacobs_birds.pdf
