Injured or Orphaned Birds
There are several steps you can take if you find an injured or orphaned bird. Don’t assume that the bird needs to be moved as this could be as harmful as leaving it in place. It can be hard for small birds in particular to survive after an injury so do what you can but be prepared for the worst.
The information provided in the links below will allow you to make decisions based on the circumstances of the injured or orphaned bird.
