Big Sky Bird Rescue (BSBR) is a non-profit organization which rescues, rehabilitates, and releases injured, sick, or orphaned wild birds.  We provide essential care, nutrition, and shelter for wild bird species found in the Big Sky area.  Our goals are to successfully return birds to their natural environment and to fulfill our community's demand for rehabilitation services for the more than 400 native bird species of Montana.
