Admitted A Bird? Check Status

Please read instructions carefully.

Thank you for taking the time to help an injured or orphaned wild bird by bringing it to The Raptor Trust for care.  We are a state and federally licensed wildlife rehabilitation center.  Our mission and our commitment is to provide the very best medical care and husbandry for the bird you have entrusted to us.  Our goal, in every possible case, is to give that bird a second chance at freedom by releasing it back into the wild after rehabilitation.

Click on the link that applies to the bird you are checking on:

Adult Songbirds, Adult Waterfowl and All Raptors

If you’ve dropped off an adult bird and waited the appropriate 48 hours, please use our Bird Lookup form.

You may email us at and provide your admit number or date of admit, species of bird, and the last name of the person who dropped off the bird. We will answer your email within 3-4 days.

We ask you to please refrain from calling to ask about the status of your bird as it takes us away from caring for the birds. Thank you for your understanding!

Baby Songbird or Waterfowl

Non-raptor babies are evaluated upon arrival and mixed in with others of their own species.  This is the best thing for their development, but makes it difficult for us to tell which baby bird is YOUR baby bird!

Please refrain from calling or emailing to check on these young patients. This will allow us to focus more energy on necessary bird care. The rehabilitation process of a baby bird takes from two to three months.

If you are still curious about the outcome of the bird you placed in our care and have given it a minimum of two months in our care, please visit the Bird Lookup form.
