Birds are nesting now and that means that very soon baby birds will be leaving the nest, also known as fledging. Every spring and summer we get calls from people who have found a baby bird on the ground and want to know what they can do to help. Most often these birds do not need our help, their parents continue to care for them even after they leave the nest. They continue to feed them, protect them and teach they to fly. The chart below is an excellent resource to help you determine if a baby bird needs help. Should the bird require intervention, please see below the chart for a list of wildlife rehabilitators and others qualified to care for birds and other wildlife.
