The official registration and financial information of Wildbird Recovery may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State by calling toll free, within Pennsylvania, 1.800.732.0999. Registration does not imply endorsement.

Wildbird Recovery is a not for profit, volunteer organization, NOT State or Federally funded. Because we are completely dependent on donations to support our efforts, Wildbird Recovery is constantly on the look-out for supplies, equipment, and cash donations that enable us to provide quality care. Monetary Donations are always needed for housing, feeding, and veterinary care.

Once baby season has begun, funding is more and more critical. On average it will cost us $45 per songbird to feed, medicate (if needed) and care for until it is ready to be released.
