BIRD PHOTO GALLERY

Each year The Place for Wild Birds admits about 1,000 wild
bird patients from approximately 52 avian species. Our goal is
to return these creatures back to nature where they belong. We
keep complete records on all the birds who come to us, and sometimes
this includes taking photographs of them while we treat and tend
them. We don't have room here for all the photographs in our
records, but we would like to share with you some of our beautiful
Each of the pictures below is just a small part of one
of the pictures on the page to which it is linked. Can you tell
which part? Click on each photo below to see more. (For an alphabetical
list, click here.)
Please note: The birds in these photos are all wild animals,
not pets. Wildlife should only be handled by Wildlife Specialists,
and even they do not do so more than is absolutely necessary.
If you see hands in a photo, they are the hands of a licensed
Wildlife Specialist. If you see a cage in a photo, it is part
of the aviary here at The Place for Wild Birds where we keep
rehabilitated birds just prior to releasing them back to the
wild. You should not attempt to handle wild birds in order to
photograph them or to keep wild birds as pets.
Likewise, it is illegal to possess wild bird nests. The
abandoned nests you will see on some of these pages were photographed
for ID purposes only, and then carefully returned to nature.
