Between July and September this year, more birds arrived at the Rehabilitation Centre than in any previous period. Most of the birds were young belonging to species which breed in Romania. These birds don`t have the experience of their parents, thus they are more exposed to natural risks (ex. unfavourable weather conditions for hunting) or anthropogenic dangers (ex. collisions with cars, wires, fences, buildings). 39 people came to us with injured birds they had found in this period.Adding to the 15 patients already at the centre (2 Saker Falcon, 2 Common Buzzard, 6 Kestrel, 3 Little Owl, one White Stork, one Long-eared Owl), 41 birds arrived during these 3 months. These included one Golden Eagle, one Saker Falcon, 3 Common Buzzard, 4 Kestrel, 2 Little Owl, 12 White Stork, one Black Stork, 3 Long-eared Owl, one Sparrowhawk, one Northern Goshawk, 3 Little Bittern, 3 Scops Owl, one Common Swift, 2 Rook, one Jackdaw, one Crow, one Common Nightingale. Overall 56 birds received treatment, with eight receiving surgical interventions, 7 receiving medication/bandage and the others not needing medical treatment but just the opportunity to rest and regain their energy.
25% (14 individuals) of the birds perished in this period and 27 birds (48,21%) were released, the rest remained in the Centre for further treatment.

The following birds were treated during July-September 2013 (the birds helped by giving advices through phone are marked with an *):

Between January and September 2013, 89 birds were bought to our Centre- an average of one new arrival every three days. We try to accomplish all requirements and to provide shelter for every bird which arrives at the Centre, but unfortunately there were no free bird cages in this period. The Centre is run as a collaboration between Milvus Group and Vets4Wild Association, a group of veterinarians who dedicated their work to safe wild animals from our fauna. If you have any questions you can contact them on their website: www.vets4wild.ro.

We would like to thank those who asked for our help and especially to the veterinarians Levente Borka and Lóránd Köbölkuti from Tîrgu-Mureș and Merești respectively, whose fast and careful help was invaluable to us. Also, special thanks to Lajos Pál from Odorheiu Secuiesc, who donated us a cage!

In the name of the Rehabilitation Centre,
