A bird flew into my window, how can I help?

Place the bird in a box large enough for it to extend its wings. Put the closed box in a safe, quiet and dark place. Do not give the bird food or water. Even if it becomes more active, do not let the bird go once you have contained it. Birds often have internal injuries after hitting a window, and will need help. Call our Provincial Call Centre at 1-855-622-7722 for further advice or to find a wildlife rehabilitator.

Visit our store to purchase window alert bird saver decals and find out more about how you can help strike out at bird-window collisions.
