Winter Hours

The Bird Center is remaining open during the winter season. In March, we will be open seven days a week with varying hours. If you have found a bird in need of assistance, please call the Center to be sure that we are open!

Please do not bring a bird to the Center without speaking directly to a staff member first.


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.
