FIRST – Call the Avian Medical Clinic at 843.971.7474 and press option #1 for the Injured Bird Line.
You can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are available to assist with injured birds from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. every day of the week. If you need assistance after 9:00 p.m., please leave a message and we will contact you first thing the following morning.
Always leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
SECOND – Do not handle the bird unless you are confident you can do so without injuring yourself or injuring the bird further. Injured raptors require specialized treatment and care from a Federally-licensed, experienced practitioner.
It is illegal to possess any migratory bird without state and federal permits. However, your temporary assistance is allowed in helping an injured bird reach proper care and doing so ensures its best chance for recovery and return to its natural environment.
THIRD – If the bird is contained, do not offer food or water to the bird.
The bird may not be strong enough to process solid food, even if it appears hungry; feeding could harm or even be fatal to the bird. Having food in its system may also preclude certain medical procedures that the bird may need.
Please note that our facilities are not equipped to treat ducks, geese, or songbirds.
