What to do if u find an injured bird?
For most injured birds, place them gently in a box and keep them quiet, dark and cool. It may be that the bird is in shock and will soon recover so you can let it go. If it is more seriously injured, this will reduce stress on the bird until you can get advice on how you can help it.

How do you kill a bird quickly?
Place the back of the birds head in the crook between you thumb and fingers and hold firmly. Pull the neck sharply downwards, bringing the neck backwards at the same time by twisting your hand and to push your knuckles into the bird’s back. The bird may still flap a lot for some time when dead.
How do you know if a bird is in pain?

Can you save a bird with a broken wing?
You can help a bird that has a broken wing by nursing the bird back to health and helping to repair the wing. Although you can help a bird with a broken wing yourself, for extreme cases where the bird is badly injured, you should seek the expertise of a professional avian veterinarian.
Can a bird broken leg heal on its own?
A break will not heal on its own, no matter how timely at-home first-aid care. Your pet bird must be seen when a leg is fractured. Sprains and fractures in the legs of birds are often treatable with immediate veterinary care.
Who do you call for a hurt animal?

How do you tell if a bird is stunned or dead?
Find the bird. If the collision was minor, the bird might fly off right away, or it may move somewhat away from the window. If it were stunned, however, it would likely be underneath the window or very close by and may not be alert or moving.
Do vets charge for wild birds?
Vets aren’t obliged to treat wildlife for free, and typically aren’t trained in the care of wildlife, so it is a good idea to call around local practices before visiting, and find out if your vet has links with local wildlife rescue groups to make sure the animal is taken care of after being treated.
