Have you ever seen a bird flapping around in your yard or on the sidewalk, and wondered if it needs help? What could you possibly do in this situation? As it turns out, there are ways to determine whether it’s in trouble, and what steps to take if it is.
Remember that a healthy bird won’t let itself be caught in an open area. The fact that you’ve managed to catch the bird means that it’s ill or injured. The only exclusion here is a fledgling – a young bird that falls out of the nest because it can’t fly well enough yet. You can recognize them by prominent parts at both edges of the beak and a lot of tubes in the tail because this is usually the last part to grow.

– Some species pretend to be injured to lead you away from the nest.
– Even an injured bird can be really difficult to catch. It might have broken feathers, be dragging its wings, or move in small jumps, flying just above the ground.
– If you just take the injured bird and bring it home, you’re probably not helping its chances of survival.
– Depending on the bird’s species and the severity of the illness or injury, it might take months, or even years, to find a home for it.
– Even if you don’t see wounds or blood right away, try to examine it thoroughly, pulling apart the feathers.
– If parts of bones can be seen through the wound, the bird has an open fracture.
– If the wing or leg doesn’t move, is twisted unnaturally, or has bruises or bumps, it’s likely the bird has a closed fracture.
– If the bird is lying on its belly with its legs cast away, this usually means that it has a spinal injury.
– When several feathers are missing in the wings or tail, it’s a minor injury, since feathers will grow back, and the bird will be able to fly away.
– Birds with a head injuries can often be found near glassy shop windows or on roads where they’ve been hit by a car.
– To transport the bird, prepare a ventilated box with a soft towel at the bottom. Put on thick gloves, take the bird gently but firmly, and put it into the box.
– Clean the box or cage where you keep the bird as often as you can; don’t let excrements get dry and spread in the air.
– Don’t keep the bird close to your children or pets. Isolate it if you can. When the bird gets better, ask the vet if you can let it out or not. In some cases, the injuries are so severe that it’ll never be able to live in the wild again.
