Help with Injured and Baby Birds

If you have found an injured or baby bird in New York City and need information on how to help it, please first see our guide on what to do if you have found an injured bird.

The best place to take injured birds is the Wild Bird Fund on Manhattan's Upper West Side. You can find information about other animal rehabilitation centers in New York City here.

If you have further questions, please contact injuredbird@nycaudubon.org.

Questions about the Audubon Name?

In March 2023, NYC Audubon's board of directors announced its intention to change the organization's name, dropping "Audubon" and beginning a process to choose a new name that was inclusive, welcoming, and representative of the organization's work. We expect to announce a new name in 2024. Learn more about the name assessment process and how you can provide input on a new name for the organization.
