A Belted Kingfisher who stayed with us temporarily before being transferred to Howell Nature Center

At the Bird Center, our strength is in helping songbirds, a wide category that embraces birds that are neither waterfowl or raptors (owls and hawks). We refer injured and abandoned hawks and owls to the River Raisin Raptor Center (Dody Wyman, 734-428-8455) and waterfowl to Howell Nature Center (517-548-5530).

In an emergency, we can give advice and short term aid for these kinds of birds, but are not equipped to handle their long-term rehabilitation at our center.
