Change in Hours of Operation

Beginning today, Monday, September 9th, the Bird Center will start slowly cutting back hours to coincide with sunrise/sunset. The Center will now be open from 7am – 8:30pm, 7 days a week. Phone hours are 7:30am – 8:00pm, and intake hours are 7:30am – 7:30pm. Please do not bring a bird to the Center without speaking directly to a staff member first.

As summer winds down and daylight gets shorter, we will continue to cut back operating hours. We’ll keep you updated with any other changes we make!


If you have found an injured or thought to be abandoned bird, please keep it in a stress-free environment and in a contained enclosure without any food or water until you’ve spoken to a wildlife rehabilitator.

If you need immediate assistance near the Washtenaw County area, you can contact the Humane Society of Huron Valley or the Howell Nature Center. You can also contact any rehabber on the Michigan DNR website.
