Care of injured birds

In many cases you may be the first on the scene to spot an injured bird.

  1. Never endanger yourself and the bird further.
  2. If you feel confident to catch the bird yourself then do so with caution. Handle the bird only if necessary by picking it up and holding it securely with the wings against its body. Use a towel or similar to cushion the bird’s body.
  3. Place the bird in a cardboard box, with holes for ventilation, in a dark place to allow the bird to calm down. A towel on the bottom of the box will help the bird keep warm.
  4. Contact the appropriate agency below as soon as possible.

Note – Hawks, owls and sea birds are far more difficult to catch so contact those trained in bird welfare first.
