Injured and Baby Birds

Klamath Bird Observatory does not rehabilitate wildlife. If you do encounter an injured or apparently abandoned bird it is best to leave it alone, unless it is in immediate danger.

Remember, young birds recently fledged from the nest are often unable to fly, however they are likely still being cared for by their parents. Do not touch or remove them, the parents are likely nearby.

If the bird is more seriously injured, contact your local wildlife rehabber.  CLICK HERE for a list of Oregon rehabbers. CLICK HERE for a list of California rehabbers
