Determining What's Wrong

The Birds > What to do for an Injured Bird > DWW
Any normal, healthy, wild bird, when approached by a human being, will fly away. If it doesn't, something is wrong with it.
Most times one of the following is what's wrong:
  • It's too young to fly away.
  •     (see the section called Young Birds)
  • It's been injured and can't fly away.
  •     (see the section called Injured Birds)
  • It's sick and too weak to fly away.
  •     (see the section called Sick Birds)
  • It's tame (probably because it was improperly raised in captivity) and doesn't know it should fly away.
