Sick, Injured and Mistreated Birds

Sick and Injured Birds

We regret that we (and the RSPB in general) are unable to help you deal with sick, injured or orphaned birds; that's a matter for the RSPCA (RSPCA 24 hour national cruelty and advice line: 0300 1234 999), or an animal rescue centre.

That said, the RSPB website has some information on dealing with injured or sick birds.
