There are many steps to consider before bringing a bird into your home as a pet. Everything from the bird’s environment to nutrition and cage hygiene need to be addressed. Birds in the wild have different needs, and it’s important to understand what steps to take if one comes across injured birds well as who to contact to ensure the appropriate rules are followed to make sure these birds are properly treated and rehabilitated. Dr. Darryl Heard, a wildlife and zoo medicine specialist, will discuss what birds need at home and in the wild to have the best possible quality of life.
