Timing affects results: Don’t wait to call us!

Red-breasted sapsucker

Often those who discover birds that are nestlings, injured or displaying unusual behaviour decide to wait and see how it goes before calling PROWLS.

Sometimes they call the next morning, or even in a few days. This is never a good idea. They should call right away.

If it is a case of a cat attack, the bird needs antibiotics as soon as possible. Their systems operate so much more quickly than humans, regardless of whether it be growing, healing or dying.
