Evenings with Audubon: "Is that bird O.K.?!"
Ahhh, spring at last. You’re on a lovely stroll around your neighborhood, filled with budding blooms and bird songs. Suddenly, you notice a young feathered bird hopping around near some bushes, and wonder, “What’s going on? Why isn’t it flying? What should I do?”
Join two of our licensed rehabilitation staff (Paige Pederson and Jackie Sandberg) and folks from Madison Audubon to hear common scenarios and get answers to your questions about how to identify whether a bird is sick, injured, or orphaned. Learn when and what steps you can take to help, and not accidentally harm, Wisconsin’s wild winged creatures!
