Welcome from Missi, Avian Ambassador at Wild Bird Rescue, Inc.

I came to Wild Bird Rescue in the summer of 2009. Some woman found me on the ground and picked me up. Good thing she knew what to do. She took me to Wild Bird Rescue. At the door, a nice lady named Lila, picked me up and took me into a room called the infirmary. After a complete exam, Lila put me in this large box called a carrier. I stayed there for a few weeks while everyone decided what to do with me. Because I had completely lost my left eye, I would not do well if released back into the wild. The Migratory Bird Act of 1918 says I have to be releasable or be euthanized. Lucky for me Wild Bird Rescue decided to keep me around as their first education bird. I like to be called their Avian Ambassador...I think that sounds more important. Don't you? I will be going out to schools in the fall to help with presentations. I wonder if I get to use PowerPoint? I hope you enjoy keeping up with my trials and tribulations while I am learning how to work on the glove.

March 21, 2010

Tomorrow I’ll be at Jefferson Elementary School to meet a few students. The Times Record News has scheduled a photographer to come out with me. I am trying to raise money for my new mew. Students at Jefferson Elementary will be donating money all week long to help out. My new mew will have a very special name. It will be called the “Brittani Gossett Memorial Aviary” in memory of a young girl who once attended Jefferson Elementary. Brittani loved birds and all other living things dearly. In the future when students visit Wild Bird Rescue, they will have a chance to see me in my special aviary. I know Brittani will be looking down on me with a big smile on her face.
