Volunteers needed to care for orphaned birds


The Peninsula Humane Society is looking for volunteers to help care for orphaned baby birds delivered to its Wildlife Rescue Center by good Samaritans.

The PHS takes in more than 4,000 injured, sick, or orphaned wild animals every year, and each spring the center looks for volunteers to help care for the influx of baby birds brought in by residents who find them lost or abandoned.

Volunteers learn to handle and feed the baby birds with the goal of eventually releasing them back into the wild.

Those interested are asked to apply online at, and register for one of 10 baby bird orientation classes.

The Peninsula Humane Society is at 12 Airport Blvd. in San Mateo.
