What To Do With Injured Birds


Do not attempt to care for the bird yourself. In doing so you might be in violation of State or Federal laws and in many cases you may do the bird more harm. Here are two resources you can contact for more information:

Dr. Jerry E. Ponti (Licensed by the State to treat wild birds)
Ponti Veterinary Hospital
4807 N. Starr Rd.
Otis Orchards, WA, 99027
(509) 922-7465

There is no cost to you to bring birds to them, however they can always use your generous donations.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has a list of licensed rehabilitators. The Spokane phone number is 509-456-4082.

Many birds, especially injured birds can be very difficult to handle. Because time might be critical do not post questions here that require an immediate response. If you can't get any help at the above numbers go to our Main Menu - Contact Us and start calling anyone you can. You will find someone to help you. But, please let an experienced birder help you out. You can injure yourself and cause further damage to an injured bird by mis-handling them.
