🔹 ATTENTION FINDERS (Additional Info If You Have Found A Bird):
– Please consider having the bird scanned for a chip as there is a possibility the bird could be microchipped (budgies/parakeets are generally too small).
– Please keep leg band / ring numbers private and confidential and do not disclose leg band information as this is the owner’s proof of ownership.
– Please DO NOT give a found bird to anyone who is not confirmed to be the owner. Birds are commonly targets of theft or cons. If you need a foster, please contact an admin.
– Questions that can be asked to those inquiring about a found bird.
– It is very important to hydrate found birds and not allow them to feast on dry food such as seeds and pellets as it could dehydrate them even more and make them ill. Please hydrate first with water and make sure they are drinking. You may offer fruits such as watermelon, cantaloupe, papaya, honey dew, apples, kiwi, cherries, pomegranates or offer berries such as blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries. Attached please find a link which provides ideas of healthy food choices that can be offered to birds.
– If a found bird is injured or is fluffed up with wings drooping, this bird needs medical attention ASAP. Please know that delaying to get the bird care could result in its death.
– If a found bird was brought to you by a cat or other mammal or was scratched, bitten, attacked, please take the bird to the vet immediately for treatment. Bacteria found in the saliva and the mouth of a mammal can be fatal. Cat bites should be considered the most dangerous as birds succumb to these type of injuries in a very short amount of time even if it seems minor. Attached are links to help locate an avian vet should you need one. American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP): or Association of Avian Veterinarians (AAV):
