Avian Haven is a hospital for wild birds and turtles in Freedom, Maine: 382-6761
Avian Haven is a rehabilitation center dedicated to the return of injured and orphaned wild birds to their natural roles in the wild. Aspects of achieving this goal include providing clinical care, nutritional support, species-appropriate housing, and flight conditioning.
A secondary mission is rehabilitation education, fulfilled via published journal articles, conference presentations, workshops, and internships for college students. Occasionally, we also give public presentations about rehabilitation generally and our work specifically.
If you have found an injured or orphaned bird try to keep the animal WARM, DARK, and QUIET. Keep in mind that we are predators in their eyes. Any external noise and visual stimulation is very stressful. A cardboard box with holes poked in the side and an old towel or t-shirt on the bottom is the safest container. This reduces visual stimulation and also protects the bird's feathers. It is important to contact a certified wildlife rehabilitator as soon as possible.
