The Nest is Best!
It is the time of year for baby birds! Most babies are just fine, even if you find them on the ground. Much of the time they are learning to fly – and just like humans learning to ride a bike – they fall down a lot. They need to be left alone because their parents are nearby to help them. But if you see possible injuries or a threat (cat or dog), then putting them back in their nest is the best thing to do. Click here to to our FAQ page for information on what to do if you find baby birds. We also have contacts if you need help. The picture above is Great Horned Owls whose nest was blown down by a storm. BPRC came out, built a new nest in the tree and they successfully fledged!
North Texas Giving Day on September 22nd!
Help the injured, sick and orphaned raptors of North Texas on September 22nd
North Texas Giving day is coming up. On September 22nd, from 6am to midnight, every donation of $25 to $50,000 will get additional ‘bonus’ funds. Please consider BPRC for your donation on this day to help further the mission of BPRC to rehabilitate injured, sick and orphaned raptors in North Texas and educate everyone about their importance in our environment.
This year we have already received more than 300 patients for rehabilitation! $25 will feed a Screech owl for a month, $150 pays for x-rays for a Great Horned owl, $500 will cover the costs to rehabilitate a Cooper’s Hawk.
Mark your calendar or put a reminder on your phone for September 22nd.
