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.

May 11, 2010

Wow, Wild Bird Rescue sure is busy this time of year. The incubator is full of hatchlings and the cages are full of nestlings. You should hear the noise too! How’s a bird to think with all that noise going on in the building? I have things of great importance running through my head. Such as…will I eat a mouse or superworms for supper? I just can’t get any thinking done! As the Avian Ambassador, I am expected to be a great thinker. The only problem is I keep falling off my perch every time I try to rest my elbow on my leg. I just don’t know how Rodin’s The Thinker does it!!! Phee Phew
