There are times when completely by chance, we find ourselves face to face with an orphaned or injured animal or bird. It is never convenient. Things like this happen when we are already late for an appointment, or it is pouring rain and we are all dressed in white. Despite the utter inconvenience, many of us cannot turn away. We have to get out of our car on the highway and chase down that muddy dog before he gets hit by a truck, or we carefully cradle the little fledgling that has fallen from its nest.
Although many people have a pretty good idea how to go about taking care of a stray dog or cat, birds are another story completely. Many people have no idea what to do with either wild or domestic birds. That is where we come in. When you find yourself in need of a professional avian rescue in Cincinnati, OH, we can help. At Emerald Parrot Rescue, we offer emergency help to all birds. No bird gets turned away.
If you find an injured or orphaned bird, if at all possible, place it in a quiet, darkened place, like a small box, with a source of air and some soft bedding. Keep the bird in a warm (not hot) place, and call us right away. Improper administration of water or food can cause pneumonia. The same advice applies if you find a domestic bird that has been abandoned or has flown the coop without the consent or knowledge of his or her human companion.
In addition to assisting with wild bird rescue and rehabilitation, we always offer lots of free services for parrots, including babysitting, help with feeding and administering medication, and trimming of beaks, nails, and feathers.
Rely on Emerald Parrot Rescue when you need help with an injured, orphaned, or abandoned bird.
