Certainly wild birds face many challenges in the wild that can affect their abilities to survive and increase their likelihood of becoming injured, found, and then brought into a rehab center. Things such as habitat loss, climate change and environmental pollution can all impact a bird’s ability to successfully hunt, forage, nest, breed, migrate, or perform any of their natural behaviors. VINS has also made a significant effort to spread the word about our Center for Wild Bird Rehabilitation in order to facilitate getting help to the wildlife in need around our region.
