Wildlife Rescue of Injured Bird – We Find While in Nature & Learn How to Care For an Injured Bird

Here we see a Wildlife rescue of an injured bird How to Look After an Injured Bird – We Find
One on Our Walk and Decide We Cannot Leave it
to Die. So I took it
to the Raptor Trust in Millington, NJ Dee and I were out for our evening walk, when we discovered
an injured bird in the road, huddled against the curb, unable to move, and bleeding slightly.
I pick the bird up and move it to the Bushes nearby, unsure what
to do. We walked further down for about another mile
and decided if the bird was still there upon our return, we would bring it home and figure
out how to help, rather than let a cat or other animal attack it
and kill it. So a little while later, the
little bird was still there, so I picked it up and carefully carried the bird home. After sharing our travels on facebook and hearing from a few friends that
have saved animals, we were directed to the Raptor Trust in Morristown, NJ – About 45
mins away. So I turned off the lights in my office, and
let the poor thing rest the night. The very next morning, I drive the 45 mins to Millington,
NJ and brought the English Sparrow to the Sanctuary to hopefully recover. I looked up how to care for an injured
and instructions are: 1. Please use a cardboard box to transport
the bird. Prepare the box by punching holes in the sides and lining it with a soft towel
or t-shirt. DO NOT USE A WIRE BIRD CAGE! 2. Approach the bird with caution. Again,
please see the section called Capturing, Handling and Transporting for special precautions to
use with larger birds and raptors. 3. Secure the bird by throwing a large towel
or blanket over it. Gently but firmly lift the covered bird and lower it into the box.
Close the box securely! 4. Keep the
bird WARM, DARK AND QUIET! Bring it to us
or another licensed rehabilitator for help as soon as possible. Disturb as little
as possible-DO NOT ATTEMPT TO GIVE IT WATER OR FOOD unless instructed to do so by
a licensed rehabilitator. Please do not attempt
to care for the bird yourself.

  1. Plz answer…
    Ok so today my grandma heard a big thud on the window. And it was a bird…:( I went outside and tried to pick it up and put it in a box with food. It didn't eat anything and it looked like it couldn't fly! I am so scared it won't survive plzzzz tell me what to do!!!

  2. Hey guys was wondering if u had any tips for me, i recently found a bird in my pond and am attempting to nurse it back to health, it seems to have lost most of the feathers on its back and for some odd reason isnt able to bend its legs. Food choice recommendations would be of great help

  3. my cat has bitten a pigeon in the neck. the bird is kind of dying. it looks like he's choking but he isn't. do you know what to do? he won't eat.

  4. I know this video is old, but I came across a severely injured bird. I work at a park district and I woman came in me informing me that there was an injured bird laying next to our front door. The bird must have been suffering from internal bleeding because a little bit of blood was coming from its beak. We tried calling animal control, local police stations, even local fire stations but nobody would come out. We put it in a box with paper towel underneath, and the bleeding became severely worse. None of us could bring it to the nearest animal hospital (5 miles away) since we were on the clock and couldn't leave the park (we do security). The bird ended up passing away and I was really frustrated that nobody would come to help. I was wondering if anybody here would know how to go about helping a bird that was in that condition if I ever come across another bird in that condition (God forbid). It really hurt me to see one of God's creatures go out like that. Great video man, God bless!

  24. My cat injured a bird, brought it into the dinning room (the bird with a huge gash under it's wing) , and it was fluttering around. Told me mum. Said "could we put it back into the wild?". She laughed and said "it's not surviving with that injury". I start freaking out cuz she is basically saying we gotta kill it. So she tries to pick it up with a plastic bag to throw in the bin, but the bird fights back and almost scratched me mum. So she put a box over it and said to wait till me father comes home. I know me dad. He's gonna save it, and bring it back into the wild ?

  25. My cat decided to drag a poor bird in so now I’m nursing it back to health and have no idea where to start

  29. I just found one. My cats recent prey. He looked so helpless so I had to help him. Currently in a makeshift cage and am trying to keep him alive

  30. 3 magpies attacked a baby bird in my yard and it's sitting under the yard table. We've gave it water and food and the mum bird keeps on coming back to give it worms.

  31. mmm I wish I could’ve helped a black bird from dieing his talons backwards and I found him under one of my pots idk how it there but I’m guessing it’s a sick joke from some ass hole . But he was beaten so bad that my mom said it was better to kill it and we snapped the neck I didn’t wanna do it but it was the right thing to do.

  32. I just found a bird right now and uploaded it to my YouTube ,do you know what I can do to help it please I need advice

  33. I have a dying bird in my room coz it got attacked by my cat i will give a update tommorrow if it makes it or not ?

    It died after in the night ?R.I.P

  34. I came to conclusion that people & organisations like PETA should stop imitating as if they love animals.

    Contact everyone I can , there's no bird doctor in my city . Peta doctors are on leave & their ambulance driver too in my region . The nearest hospital for bird is too far .

    The bird , I'm trying to save broke his both legs. Need urgent help on how to save him

  35. im in the same situation right now had the bird inn for a few hrs "found it just outside my door not sure what type of bird either it is small and black and i think it might have been a car or it just did fly into something , i try it the way you did for now and hope it is okay tomorowe ,, must say it did ruin the last days of my vacation and in Norway i bet i have to pay the vet bill , but it is okay if i se it fly again

  36. Poor little thing 🙁 I hope he gets better. I found 3 baby birds 10 days ago and we raised them because all the rescues for birds near us (from 20 minutes up to 2 hours away) were full (because of all the baby birds being born lately) and the mom was not seem (we had a big storm the night before) and now we are letting them go tomorrow. They can fly and eat and everything and I'm excited to see them venture off

  37. My parents just brought a bird which was injured and they are planning to eat it? sounds rude right?
    It's leg is fractured or something but if we try we can save it.. But this idea didn't seem much interesting to them and all of them are ready to serve it on their plates… They are not even letting me to help it with its leg instead they are saying it anyways it will die it's just a bird
    I don't understand why people just only care about themselves coz something which is small also has the right to live it's own life.. That line made me really sick and I can't even look at that helpless creature bcoz I can't do nothing for him ? which makes me feel helpless ?
    This people are just pathetic

  42. Found one today helping the poor thing out it would make me so happy to eventually see him well and fly off into the distance fingers crossed

  43. i found a robin stuck in a fence me and my mom got it out but its neck is broken so new im on youtube trying to see if theres a way to save it or if it will just die :((((

  44. Thank you for your kindness, we need a lot more people like this in the world. I was glad to see the disclaimer talking about how to properly care for an injured wild bird because too many kids find wild species and try to keep them! The right thing to do is immediately take the bird to a wildlife rehabilitator, especially one that specializes in birds. I'm actually in high school studying to work at the waterfowl rescue center near my home and have actually gotten to go see some of the animals and take a couple classes there.
