Mary's Finch release photo - 04-22-11
Mary Eldridge sent me another photo of the finch release that I posted yesterday. Her husband, Dennis, actually caught the finch as a blur of feathers coming out of the carrier. At least we got that much, but boy, we could have used one of those fancy high speed cameras that day for a better photo op!
Yellow Bellied Sap Sucker
This yellow bellied sap sucker was turned in by Mike Bonser, one of our DNR officers over a week ago or better. It was brought to him by a concerned rescuer. Christina Langham took over care of this bird, There was just a mild concussion present and I am hoping by now this bird was able to go back to the wild.
Thanks to Nikki Novak, a few of our wild ones will be snuggling up with these Cozy Hugs for comfort and warmth. Thanks, Nikki, for these and the generous donation.

Ever wonder how the meal worms come in the mail? Well, wonder no more, the fourth picture is of how the mail delivers them. Over 1000 meal worms were in this package!
Terese and Barred owl Spirit at Sacred Heart School
Besides rehabbing animals, we will always be out there educating and teaching how to coexist and help wildlife when the need arises. Linda and I are the two primary public educators. This program was at “my” school, Sacred Heart, which I attended many moons ago.
The kids were learning about respect and compassion for all living things and I was asked to do a program for the school They were divided into two groups and both were large audiences. They were wonderful kids to visit with and receptive and respectful to the information shared on wildlife rehabbing. In this photo, they were enjoying the wing span of Spirit, our educational barred owl.
Have a blessed Easter everyone!
