Before contacting Discovery Bay Wild Bird Rescue, read the following…

Baby birds
If you find a baby bird outside its nest, wait to see if it is abandoned and not merely resting while learning to fly. The parents are often nearby and are continuing to care for it. If the baby is injured or you’re sure it’s not being cared for contact Discover Bay Wild Bird Rescue.

Other wild animals (like deer)
Baby animals are often left alone for long periods of time in order to learn independence. Unless there has been some type of human interference, leave baby animals alone.

Injured wild birds
If you have found an injured wild bird, cover it with a towel and place it in a box, and put it in a warm, dark, quiet place. Contact Discovery Bay Wild Bird Rescue. Do not attempt to feed or water.

Purpose for rescuing
The purpose of a wild bird rescue facility is not to keep the birds for display or educational use, but to set them free so that they can go back to their habitat and live a natural life.
