Ask a Question About Wildlife in Massachusetts

Encountered an Injured Bird?

If you are positive that the bird is injured (as opposed to a young bird still learning to fly), please contact a local wildlife rehabilitator, the only people allowed to have wildlife in their possession.

To find one closest to you, visit the MassWildlife website (look for the regions on the right-hand side of the page) or call MassWildlife at 508-389-6300.
