IF YOU FIND A HURT OR DOWNED BIRD OF PREY
Immediately call Birds of Prey Northwest at
(208) 582 0797, a Fish and Game officer, a local veterinarian or preferably a wildlife rehabilitation center who has experience and housing for these special avian patients.
Never feed a bird, especially a baby bird that cannot fly and is prematurely grounded.
With leather gloves on, capture the bird by the legs and get it captive in a box. Call us immediately so we can get the bird the necessary medical attention it needs.
If you are able to donate monetarily, 100% of your donation goes directly towards caring for the birds at Birds of Prey Northwest. Food to feed the rehabilitating and non-releasable birds, electricity to operate the maintenance building and aviary heat lamps, veterinary expenses: all of these benefit from each dollar donated. We are a 501(C)(3) organization.
These active birds of prey eat a surprising amount of food, from a couple mice daily for the smallest pygmy owl to whole flanks of fish or venison for the large eagles. If you have any extra, clean meat (perhaps some that became freezer burnt?) that you would like to donate, it will provide multiple meals for many birds!
Sponsorships are also available. These donations go towards the construction of a new raptor education center or the sponsorship of an aviary, and are available at several donation levels. Submit the form to the right to find out more!
For more information on any of these opportunities, or to inquire about a sponsorship, please fill out the following form:
