Bird Q&A

Found a Bird?

Please see Resources page for phone numbers of any organization we reference below.

What do I do if I find an injured bird?  “i.e. can’t fly, shaking, not moving, missing feathers, etc”
Gently capture the bird then put it in a safe container (box with holes or kennel). Then contact your nearest Wildlife Rehabilitator. A list of Colorado's Licensed Wildlife Rehabilitators can be found here.


What do I do if I find an injured hawk or owl?
Please call Birds of Prey.  Leave message if they do not answer. You can also call the Colorado Division of Wildlife.


What do I do if I find a baby bird?


What do I do if I have a bird trapped in my house?
Turn off all the lights.  Open up a door to the outside that is bright.  Help guide the bird toward the light.
If the bird is caught in a place you cannot get to and it cannot fly, please call Urban Wildlife.
