Baby Birds

Spring and summer are the most common seasons to find baby birds. Make sure you don't accidentally kidnap a baby bird! Look around to see if there is a nearby nest or adult birds of the same species. It may be that the baby is fledging and just needs to be put back in its nest or as close as possible to the nest.

If a bird flew into your window and is found on the ground with no obvious injuries, you can move it to a safe location or place it in a box in a dark, quiet location to recover for about an hour. Bring the box back outside and open it to see if the bird flies away. If it is still disoriented, immobile or not flighted, call our wildlife hotline at 541 241 8680. 

Before trying to capture or contain a bird, please call our wildlife hotline for instructions: 541 241 8680
