Bird TLC

Your Bio

Bird TLC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to rehabilitating sick, injured or orphaned wild birds and providing avian education programs to the public. Dr. James R. Scott, an Anchorage veterinarian, now retired, founded Bird TLC in 1988. Dr. Karen Higgs, along with many volunteers, donate thier time to treat these birds in need. In addition to medical care, Bird TLC provides a variety of educational programs to increase people's awareness of the wild birds around them and to encourage preservation of their habitat. Bird TLC is supported by education program fees and contributions from individuals, private foundations, corporations.

Here you'll find pictures of birds in our rehabilitation and education programs. There will also be pictures of birds being released back to the wild and other Bird TLC events and the people that make it happen. Enjoy!
