Found an injured bird?

Have you found a bird that has hit a window? First, make sure to NOT leave it where it has fallen. Instead, provide the bird with a quiet, dark, safe place to rest and recuperate. Gently place the bird inside an un-waxed paper bag or a small cardboard box. If possible, place a paper towel or tissue in the bottom before you place the bird inside. Handle the bird as little as possible. Make sure that the bag or box is closed. Never feed the bird or give it water.
