This Tiny Hospital Helps Injured Birds Survive the Commotion of New York City

Typically, the bird rehab facility's patients are more diverse and come from the city's many prime bird habitats. Central Park hosts nearly 300 species of migrants every spring; Jamaica Bay offers one of the best saltwater habitats on the East Coast; and the Big Apple has the highest concentration of nesting Peregrine Falcons in the world. Concerned citizens have brought in grebes from Brooklyn, vultures from Queens, and owls from Staten Island; injuries range from poisoning to window collisions to pet attacks. Since the nonprofit opened in Manhattan in 2005, the number of birds that come through its door has increased by at least 30 percent each year, McMahon says, with nearly 5,000 birds receiving treatment in 2016.
