What should I do if I find a sick or injured bird?
Read about bird diseases and what to do if you find a sick bird on our website. If you find a bird that you believe needs intervention to survive, contact a wildlife rehabilitator. Never try to capture and care for a wild bird. For most bird species, it is illegal for you to have the bird unless you are under the direction of someone licensed to possess wild birds. The Humane Society website provides contact information for rehabilitators in the U.S. or in Canada.
