How to Handle Injured Birds

Do you know what to do if you find an injured bird? Sometimes non-intervention is the best course of action, especially if it is still capable of flight. Read the recommendations of a wildlife rehabilitator regarding when and how to handle an injured bird or other wildlife in this article from the Fall 2017 issue of New Hampshire Bird Records (“The Case of an Injured Crane–and How to Handle Injured Birds” begins on page 41).

Other articles in this issue include: Dublin Birding Areas, Common Shelduck in New Hampshire, photos and field notes from the 2017 fall season, and of course a Photo Quiz. Enjoy them all!
