The following data is the yearly average of top 20 avian patients admitted to the Wildlife Center of Virginia from 2008-2015. The birds included in this list are the species that eat plant foods in their diets. The list ranks the species that are the “heavy hitters”—the species most frequently admitted to the hospital on average.
Of course, there are many other species of birds that get treated by rehabilitators. The census list changes somewhat from year to year, and location to location.
