If you have found an injured bird that does not have a hooked beak, or sharp talons, it is most likely a song bird, such as an American Robin, English Starling or Chicadee, in which case the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah will best be able to care for it. If it is seriously injured or ill, such as being unresponsive, or unable to stand, bring it to A Caring Vet and we will stabilize it for travel to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah at 1490 Park Boulevard in Ogden, Utah. If it is responsive and able to stand on its own call WRCNU at 801-814-7888. If you are still unsure how to proceed, please call A Caring Vet at 801-785-6737.
The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah was born from the expertise, volunteerism and passion of the Ogden Nature Center’s wild bird rehabilitation facility. The WRC was organized in February 2009 due to a decision by the Ogden Nature Center’s Board of Directors to shutdown the rehabilitation facility on June 30, 2009. If you have questions regarding sick, injured or orphaned native birds or would like to volunteer you may call DaLyn Erickson, Wildlife Specialist at 801-814-7888.
WRC is the only rehabilitation center in Northern Utah. Without this much needed service there will be little to no options for wildlife in Northern Utah. Please consider a donation to allow them to continue their wildlife rehabilitation and conservation education efforts.
Through wildlife rehabilitation and education we will empower the community to engage in conservation and responsible stewardship of wildlife and habitat.
