These federally protected birds should be left alone, undisturbed, or be immediately taken to Honolulu Zoo or Sea Life Park to undergo rehabilitation and release. If moving, gently pick up the bird from behind with a towel, carefully wrapping the material completely around the bird’s back and wings. Place the bird in a ventilated container and do not feed, water or handle.
As an amnesty site, animals that are illegal in Hawaii can be brought to us with no questions asked.
