The fall migratory bird season is upon us and incoming call volume is picking up for birds arriving in our area tired, undernourished and disoriented, especially at the beaches.
Look at what our team of three has accomplished so far! And still two months to go in the year!
443 Baby songbirds
102 Adult songbirds
86 Marsh/diving birds
(including all egrets, herons, ibis, spoonbills, storks, rails, anhinga, cormorants, grebes)
219 Shore birds (including Pelicans, gannets, loons, gull and tern varieties, shearwaters and petrels, sanderlings and turnstones)
172 Squirrels (grey and flying)
15 Gopher Tortoises
8 Water Turtles
96 Native Ducks (mallard and wood ducks)
18 Rabbits (march bunnies and cottontails)
47 Rats, Mice, Moles
28 Misc Birds (crows, nighthawks, woodpeckers)
150 rescues (entanglement/entrapment/flighted birds)
as well as numerous rescue/triage/transfers of raccoons, raptors (owls, hawks, eagles) and others (otters, fox, fawns) to appropriate species-specific rehabbers.
Wildlife rehab is an important, expensive, labor-intensive service provided by an unfunded organization. We all have to work together to be good stewards of our native wildlife.
We cannot imagine closing our doors to almost 1500 cries for help. The wildlife need is growing each year. Please help us expand to meet that need.
Thank your for joining us as warriors for wildlife!
