Como rescatar

Birds
What do I do if I find a bird or a pigeon ?!

You have to keep in mind is that there are two reasons why a bird can be on the floor: the first is to be a stunned animal by a blow or with a broken wing, and the second is that it is a chick that fell from nest or already left the nest.

If you realize that you are an adult and one of its wings is not seen in normal position, the best you can do is cover it with a cloth so as not to hit him and not panic when you try to grab it. Then you put it in a cardboard box and bring it to the shelter or any rescue center to give the required attention.

If a chick is important that you observe for a few hours before approaching grab as many times, although the small fall from the nest, parents still atendiendolo; so it would be advisable not to intervene. Should not have parents in sight, you can grab the chick and put it in a basket with newspaper so that heat is maintained. If an owl you can feed it with small pieces of meat while you find a way to bring it to a rescue center. If a bird you can try to give banana chips while you find a way to bring it to a rescue center.
