You can call or text Spirit Filled Wings
at 248-953-5690 . Please be patient and wait for a response or call back. SFWs is non funded, and considered a volunteer for both the state & federal government. Most wildlife rehabbers have full time jobs. Do not leave a message of location where bird is, such as, bird is on I94 near exit 220. Stay with bird, if possible, until arrangements can be made to get bird to safety, or contain bird so it is protected until transport.
Note: It is always best to get inured bird to the nearest licensed rehabilitator. You can go to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources website, www.michigandnr.com/dlr/, to locate one in the county where bird is found.
However, many rehabilitators cover more than one county. Spirit Filled Wings helps in: Macomb, Oakland, St. Clair, Lapeer, and parts of north Wayne, Livingston, and Genesee county.
To Pick Up or Contain Injured Bird:
Due to the large volume of birds taken in, we depend on the public, or finder of injured bird, to transport the bird. So PLEASE understand, that we need your help in getting bird to SFWs. Together we will coordinate a location.
Be aware; if you remove an injured raptor, it will be your responsibility to transport bird to federal rehabilitator - in otherwords, you cannot put bird back.
This is extremely important; Spirit Filled Wings makes every attempt to return bird to location where it was found.
Documenting address, or landmarks near location can be very helpful.
