This small easy to read booklet contains the basics you will need if you come across an injured or orphaned bird. Some of the information is redundant, like the constant reminder that you're not qualified to do this so call a rehabilitator. There is also a section on large birds such eagles, which probably isn't relevant. But overall it does give you what it promises, the basics the keep a bird alive until you can get it to help.
This book came in mighty handy. I am working on my vet tech degree and thought it would be a 'good read' but didn't think one day it would be a lucky thing I got it. As if heaven sent, this book did me a great deal of a favor. Thanks to this very helpful information I was able to successfully care for a baby Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker, a type of woodpecker. It was the holidays and Xmas time, and the rehabber I called couldn't make it, so I was stuck with the bird on my own & was in charge of caring for it. It never missed a meal & got fed the appropiate diet for woodpeckers & its size. It was released on Xmas morning & Twiggy can be seen gathering food & has built a home of his own. I have seen him with other birds in the neighbor's yard in a tree hunting for food and going rrheeeee his little call. He has grown a great deal too. He was my first bird to rehabilitate though I'm not a licensed rehabber. But always find one at all costs and keep trying until you do, though... Read more
This little guide is very informative! I was very impressed with the concise, helpful information on how to help and care for injured birds and abandoned baby birds. It even tells how you can know if a bird needs your help. I have yet to use any of the information, but I will be ready next time a bird needs help.
