Home / Rehabilitation

Although it is difficult and often not successful, it is sometimes necessary to try to rehabilitate injured birds or raise young birds . There is good advice on the links to the left. However, it is VERY difficult for the inexperienced to rehabilitate or raise birds. Raising baby birds should be left to the parents whenever possible. If the parents are around, return the young birds to where you found them. Do not place them back in the nest as they most likely left on their own. Note that it is against U.S. Federal Law to possess eggs, birds, nests, or feathers without a permit or license.

It is best to contact a wildlife rehabilitation center or a wildlife rehabilitator near you (see links below) or call your local wildlife official for advice. Wildlife Rescue Magazine
