The Wild Bird Fund is a state and federally licensed 501(c)(3) that cares for the injured, ill and orphaned wildlife of New York City. Our mission is to provide medical care and rehabilitation to native and passing migrant wildlife so that they can be released back into the wild. We are the only wildlife rehabilitation and education facility in New York City. Each year the Wild Bird Fund rehabilitates over 1400 sick, injured or orphaned wildlife and releases them back to the wilds of New York City. Rehabilitation includes radiographs, diagnostic testing, surgery, medication, bandaging, splinting, physical therapy, feeding and sheltering. All native and migratory birds are treated, from the house sparrows to rarities such as Virginia rails and great-horned owls Supporting the Wild Bird Fund not only heals injured birds, but positively affects the people who try to help them, and shows a desire to take responsibility for the impact that we have had on the environment of our precious wildlife.
