Songbirds: The Unsung Heroes

Even the tiniest of creatures count in a very big way ...

Who we are. The Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley (WCSV), located in San Jose, CA, is committed to providing the highest quality care and rehabilitation to urban wildlife and to promoting a mutually beneficial and respectful coexistence between humans and wildlife in our communities. The Center accepts over 5,000 wild birds, mammals and reptiles each year with the goal of release back to the wild.

In 2015, the Center admitted 2,907 birds out of a total of 5,452 animals. Birds made up 107 different species; 51 of those, or 1,558 total birds, were classified as songbirds: American Crows, House Finches, Northern Mockingbirds and California Towhees; and other species quite rarely seen, such as a Pygmy Nuthatch, Hooded Oriole, Say’s Phoebe, Fox Sparrow and even a not-so-common Common Yellowthroat.

The Center is currently giving a badly needed makeover to our Baby Bird Room. We are in immediate need of three Animal Intensive Care incubators to replace very old ones that no longer work effectively. We need two large, free-standing shelving units that will help us get the room organized with much-needed supplies such as heating pads and microwavable saucers, thermal containers, medications and medical supplies such as vet wrap and syringes; and food, such as crickets, waxworms, mealworms, berries and other fruits, vegetables.
