Have you ever wondered what to do if your cat brings home a live baby bird? Or if you see a turtle crossing the road?

The South Fork Natural History Museum in Bridgehampton will host a free wildlife rehabilitation basics course at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday that will help provide the answers.

Jim MacDougall, a volunteer for the Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Hampton Bays, will discuss steps to take when confronted with an animal in distress.

The program will feature live raptors, such as a red tailed hawk, a peregrine falcon, and a Eurasian eagle owl, and cover how to prevent animals from getting into dangerous situations.

The Evelyn Alexander Center is the only wildlife rehabilitator on eastern Long Island, and has been rescuing animals in trouble for more than 20 years. Its animal rescue hotline number is 631-728-9453.
