Due to the HPAI Avian Bird Flu, APCH will be cautiously limited to what species and conditions can be safely admitted at our Center until further notice.
  • Birds of Prey (hawks, falcons, owls, eagles, osprey with extra caution, from known injuries)
  • Corvids (crows, jays, ravens with extra caution, from known injuries)
  • Vultures (with extra caution, from known injuries)
We will need detailed assessments prior to admission. No Dead birds will be accepted. Birds who are sickly may not be admitted without history for the safety of all other birds onsite. Please understand the risk is too great.
NO SHOREBIRDS or WATERFOWL, No EXCEPTIONS. This includes ducks, swans, geese, mergansers, gulls, and the like. Not only are these species not our specialty, they are potential carriers who do not display symptoms.
