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.

June 11, 2010

I am resting peacefully in my mew this morning.  The trip to Lubbock was very long but it was nice to see my friends.   Gail and Carol thought I looked fabulous and said Lila is doing a great job with me.  I got to see my friend Windy, South Plains' Mississippi Kite.  The vets did my beak and talons.  It was painless and over in 30 seconds.  I was back in my aviary by 8:30 pm last night.  Thanks to Gail and South Plains Wildlife Rehabilitation Center for including me in their beak and talon event.
