Bird Rescue/Rehab

If you come upon an injured bird within The Villages, the recommended first step is to call Community Watch at 352-753-0550 to report the situation. Community Watch will refer the matter to a local licensed rehab expert.

 

For general information about dealing with injured wildlife, see the Injured and Orphaned Wildlife advisory from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. 

 

There is also an independent Florida Wild Bird Rescue Group directory.
