The Bird Rescue Center is the only wildlife organization in Sonoma County dedicated to all species of native wild birds. We rescue, rehabilitate, and release nearly 3,000 birds each year while educating the public about the importance of these birds to ecosystem health. Our work has never been more important in this climate change-driven era.


Remember, wild birds are not pets. They are naturally frightened of humans, and it is also against the law to keep them in your home without a permit. As a rescuer of an injured or orphaned wild bird, you have played a very important role. It is essential that the bird now receives professional care as soon as possible. 

Here’s some basic guidelines to help with rescuing a bird, download our flyers:

Get to Know Us

Our mission is to assist the public in the rescue of injured, orphaned or ill wild birds and to educate the public on the important role birds play in the environment. We’re a 501(c)(3) nonprofit licensed by both State and Federal Fish and Wildlife agencies to treat and release native birds back into the wild. Located in Santa Rosa, California, we serve the northern San Francisco Bay counties of Sonoma, Napa, Marin, Lake and Mendocino.



Through our educational presentations we interact with children and adults, sharing age-appropriate information about our local birds, and the human impacts on our environment and the birds that share it.
