Safe Wings Ottawa is program of the Ottawa Field-Naturalists’ Club to reduce bird mortality from collisions with glass through research, prevention and rescue.
If you see a bird sitting quietly or lying next to a building, or repeatedly flying towards a window, IT NEEDS YOUR HELP. It has probably suffered a concussion and may have other injuries.
If you can approach a wild bird, it’s not because it likes you or trusts you. It is injured, helpless and terrified. Please treat it accordingly.
