#35 Field Tip: Rescuing an Injured Bird

If you find an injured bird contact your local or nearest Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. They will be able to care for the bird and release it when it is healthy.

Sadly this Peregrine Falcon that was hit by a vehicle. In spite of surgery to his wing he was unable to make a full recovery, and he is now part of a WRC educational program.

Note, many baby birds are not in need of any help. See June 2010 Tip #1 on “Baby Birds Leave Them Be.”
