The Place for Wild Birds
We are here to help
The nearest available grown-up was our webmistress, Sara. She didn't know what to do, either, so she started making phone calls to see if she could find someone to tell her. Eventually her veterinarian gave her our phone number, and we were able to tell her over the phone how to keep the baby bird alive, safe and warm until she could bring it to us the next day.
The baby bird survived and grew up. He has now been released back to the wild where he belongs. Sara was so thrilled to be able to assist in the successful rescue and rehabilitation of a wild baby bird, something not too many people get to do, that she helped us build this website so that other birds might be helped, and so that other people such as yourself might have the same happy experience if they ever found themselves in a similar situation. (Sara knows, of course, that no Wildlife Specialist can save every bird which is found injured, sick or orphaned. However, she also knows that all birds in trouble have a lot better chance of surviving if they can get expert care.)
So if you are enjoying our website and finding it useful, please thank Thomas. He caused it to exist by doing just the right thing: asking for help.
