These past few weeks have truly been a 'baby bird season'. We received a total of 267 baby (mostly orphan) birds of 31 species that we spent most of time handraising, and then rehabilitating back. It is very important to provide the right nutrition for the species we work with, else birds suffer from various conditions due to improper nutrition. We also make sure to provide a well designed pre-release conditioning environment wherein the babies learn and exhibit natural behaviors and are often kept with adult conspecifics.
Other birds that came in for vairous injuries and illnesses were 971. A large majority of these are rock pigeons that are very common in our city but we also get rare, endangered, and sometimes critically endangered species for rehabilitation.
Our ultimate goal remains to rehabilitate as many as we can back in nature. Thank you for your support!
