Heat Stressed Wildlife

Friday, December 28, 2018

Specific signs of heat stress to watch for are: Any bird that is panting indicates that they are really hot. A healthy bird will try and get out of the sun and into a cooler place. If you see a bird sitting outside in the full sun panting there’s something wrong.

Put water in a shady place so it stays as cool as possible. Change the water daily or even more frequently if possible, keep the container clean. Put water in places at different heights away from pets or predators for different species of birds, place a few stones or sticks in the water to provide a means of escape for smaller creatures that may fall in. read more
