Baby Bird Rescue Advice
WHAT TO DO IF YOU FIND A BABY BIRD THAT MAY NEED RESCUE
If you find a sick, injured or orphaned chick it will need to see a vet or experienced wildlife rehabilitator.
However, some chicks that may look like they need rescue, could be healthy chicks still learning how to fly that are being tended to by their parents.
If you have found a chick that may need rescue please work through the diagram below to work out what to do.
