Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Feed an injured bird or animal and let him rest for awhile before working on his wounds. The only exception is if the wound demands immediate care because of profuse bleeding...Have on hand a glass of milk containing a little Karo syrup or sugar when working on a break or wound. If the bird shows signs of increasing stress, such as heavy breathing, give the patient a few drops of the liquid and allow him a little time to settle down before continuing to work...I always work from a sitting position with the bird on my lap...Place everything you need within reach on a table ready for instant use...It is better to treat a bird without an audience.

From Booklist:

A true classic, Care of the Wild Feathered & Furred has been updated from its original 1973 edition. Explaining in clear, practical language the basic care of orphaned and injured wildlife, the authors (with more than 60 combined years of experience) show an inexperienced reader the best ways to help any animals that they find. Information is presented in 11 sections and covers such broad topics as the care of baby birds and mammals; natural (wild) diets and suggested substitutes; treatments for injuries, poisoning, and disease; dealing with oiled birds; and release of rehabilitated animals. The authors' commonsense approach to the hows and whys of each technique discussed makes this an extremely valuable book and one that is recommended for every library. One caveat: the authors do not discuss the fact that all native birds are protected by the U.S. government and that anyone handling them is required to have a federal permit. Librarians using this book should recommend that all birds be taken to the nearest licensed wildlife rehabilitator. Nancy Bent
