What to do if you found a healthy bird

Leave the bird alone

If you have found an animal that is not injured or orphaned, please leave it alone. Wild animals have the best chances of survival in the wild. It is illegal to relocate wildlife in Massachusetts. Tufts Wildlife Clinic ONLY admits sick or injured animals. We do not have any ambulatory service to pick up wildlife.
