There are many reasons why a bird may need to come into care. e.g. injury, out of its nest, habitat loss, road victim, orphaned, etc.
We are here to HELP, but we need your HELP too.
Please keep this in mind that the bird has just gone through some kind(s) of trauma such as:
- An injury
- Shock and stress (an open mouth and panting, does not mean it wants food)
- You - you represent a threat to the bird (you are not part of their usual environment).
VERY IMPORTANT - DO NOT FEED IT, NOR GIVE IT WATER.
Do not assume BECAUSE IT LOOKS ALRIGHT, THAT IT IS ALRIGHT.
PLEASE FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE STEPS: - Place the bird in a box or cage - Keep the bird warm by covering box / cage with a large towel - Place it in a quiet room - Do not let your children or pets near it.
Then call for help
Following these steps will give the bird its best chance of getting back into the wild.
