Please note that BPQ is NOT involved in the rescue and care of injured birds.


Wild bird rehabilitation is not our area of expertise and we CANNOT accept injured birds from the public.

However … we get many approaches every year from members of the public who have found an abandoned nestling or an injured bird and don’t know what to do with them.
