Found an injured bird?
LAS does not take in injured birds. If you have any questions about injured wildlife, please contact one of the following rehabilitators.
Nevada wildlife must be taken to the Nevada rehabilitator. Dayton Valley Wildlife Reststop has two rehabilitation centers. Suzette Feilen runs the center in Silver Springs, NV. Evelyn Pickles runs the rehabilitation center in Dayton, NV.
South Lake Tahoe Wildlife is in California and birds from Reno should not be taken there under state regulations. Only those residents of California and the Tahoe Basin can bring birds to South Lake Tahoe.

The spring and summer is orphan season. If you find an orphaned bird on the ground, it’s best to leave it alone. Baby birds will often fledge (leave the nest) prior to their ability to fly. This is common and their parents will still take care of them even if they are on the ground. If the bird is in danger, you can move it to a safer place.
If you are still unsure of what to do, read our more in depth article, I Found a Baby Bird, What Should I Do?
