Current Birds in Care


Photo by Cheryl Reynolds

This week, we’re caring for a dizzying variety of species  — including five Northern Fulmars at our San Francisco Bay Area center. Other birds in care include a Bufflehead, a Red-necked Grebe, a Sora, an American White Pelican and two Red-throated Loons in beautiful plumage.

A significant number of these birds currently require frequent treatment, including wound care, water therapy and medications. We could use your help this week. Will you step up at birdrescue.org/donate for these animals?
