REHAB 310: Songbird Rehabilitation
Calling all birders, bird nerds, and bird lovers! This course covers basic rehabilitation principles for healthy orphaned songbirds so that they can ultimately be released back into the environment as healthy wild individuals.  Discussion will focus on the rehabilitation of “beginner” and “intermediate” species of birds frequently seen in rehabilitation from within the diverse scientific order Passeriformes.  The challenging task of nestling bird identification will be broken down step by step.  Discover the importance of natural history, general care, proper nutrition, hand-feeding, housing, flight conditioning, and everything else you need to know to successfully rehabilitate songbirds from hatching to release.
