Hello Kimberly, thanks for reaching out. Only veterinarians or federally licensed wildlife rehabilitators can legally treat wild birds. If you see a bird that appears to be compromised in some way, perhaps due to sickness or injury, do not try to care for the bird yourself. It is illegal for you to possess most wild birds unless you are under the direction of someone licensed for their care. Please try to contact a local wildlife rehabilitator instead. For more info, feel free to visit our page on Sick Birds and Bird Diseases.
