Wild Bird volunteers were available on the evening of Independence day to take care of baby Kestrel that had fallen out of the nest! What dedication! Thanks!

Wild bird rescue has been a literal lifesaver! After having my young cat kill a mother bird and finding eggs in her nest I called them and they took me through everything step by step. I was very upset and they comforted me that the eggs would be alright and the birds taken care of. They also told me some information about the bird, a finch, and we're extremely friendly and caring. I was happy to hear that they were able to save and release two of the babies. I am so grateful for this organization, as are others I know who have taken birds to them and always had a great outcome. This place is amazing, caring, and smart!
