Sick or injured adult birds in need of help can display the following characteristics:
Please call Greenwood Wildlife at (303) 823-8455 to discuss what you observe and to decide with a rehabilitator if the animal you see needs help.
If Greenwood is not open, place the bird in a paper bag or a box with small breathing holes. Line the box with a t-shirt, pillowcase or paper towels. Make sure the bird is upright, and do not oﬀer food or water.
Move the box indoors to a warm, dark, and quiet location away from predators. After an hour has passed, check the box to see if the bird is responsive. We recommend doing this outside in case the bird is ready to ﬂy away. If it is still stunned, leave it in the box and call Greenwood during business hours, 9am – 4pm daily.
If you determine that an animal needs to be brought to our facility, please follow these instructions for capturing and transporting animals.
If you aren’t in Colorado, use the Animal Help Now website(www.AHNow.org) or smartphone app to ﬁnd a nearby wildlife rehabilitator.
