    YOU'VE FOUND A BABY BIRD -  What should you do?
Almost all birds are protected by the International Migratory
Bird Treaty so taking care of baby birds should be left to
licensed Utah Wildlife Rehabilitators.  Many fledglings (especially
Robins) spend some time on the ground and are fed by their parents
so knowing what to do is essential for their survival. Here is
a handy guideline to follow.  

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology also has an excellent
article
on this subject.

Thanks
to all those who helped make the 2014 WBF a success!

Keith Day very interested in any sightings of the following species:

Crissal Thrasher,
Bendire's Thrasher, Bell's Vireo
Abert's Towhee, Virginia's Warbler, Yellow-billed Cuckoo

Notations of time, place (as detailed as possible) and numbers are very important.

Records of gender, age, behavior, habitat, etc. would be helpful. His contact information
