Clinic has received more than 460 patients
In only its second year of raptor rehabilitation BPRC has received more than 460 patients as of July 7th. The total for last year was 400 patients. Due to word of mouth in Dallas/Fort Worth and the surrounding counties BPRC is becoming known as the place to take sick, injured and orphaned birds of prey. We appreciate all the help of local animal services and the public in caring for the raptors of north Texas. There are many ways you can help BPRC continue to expand its coverage and capabilities including volunteering and donations.

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!
