Can I keep a baby or injured bird?
All raptors are protected by federal law. In order to raise a bird it is necessary to have all of the federal permits and follow the rehabilitation procedures.

Young birds need special attention very quickly. Please never attempt to do it on your own for a couple of days. By then, it is too late.
