DON'T BE A BIRD NAPPER
Please follow this BC SPCA flow chart to decipher if this animal is truly in need of help.
If you believe a bird to be injured, orphaned or abandoned, please contact local wildlife rehabilitation centre.
Birds go through a growth period in which they are not young enough to be in the nest nor old enough to be flying- this means they may be seen hopping around on the ground. This DO NOT mean they are injured. This is a natural part of their development. They are called "Fledglings" and are still being watched over and cared for by nearby parents.
Parents will not return to tend to their baby if you are close by. If you are concerned about a baby bird, please watch from a distance.
