Mission: To Rehabilitate and Release Songbirds and Preserve and Protect All Birds Found on every continent, across every ocean, and in every imaginable ecosystem, birds are vital to the health of our planet. The environmental services they provide, including pest control, pollination, seed dispersal, clean-up services, and more, balance our ecosystems and save us billions of dollars each year. Accessible to everyone, songbirds offer a ready way to enjoy wildlife and connect with nature.
Wild Nest Bird Rehabilitation was created out of passion and necessity. Currently, no other rehabilitation facility dedicated to songbirds exists in Georgia, and fewer than a dozen state- and federally-permitted private bird rehabilitators practice in the state, usually working in their homes and paying expenses out of pocket. Wild Nest’s beginnings were much the same. From years, Wild Nest founder and executive director Nancy Eilen cared for hundreds of wild birds in her home. In early 2021, Nancy founded Wild Nest, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization helping birds in metro Atlanta and beyond. With a flock of committed volunteers, Wild Nest endeavors to rehabilitate and release songbirds in need and to preserve and protect all birds through educating the public about what we can all do to reduce threats to birds and create a safer, healthier world for all living beings.
