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.

I want to say "Hi" to Winnie, a very clever young girl. She brought in a baby bird to us in her handmade Wild Bird Rescuing Box. Winnie is learning a valuable lesson about caring for our native wildlife. Because of children like Winnie, there will always be wild birds for everyone to enjoy. Way to go Winnie! When school starts back, I hope you will ask your teacher to invite me out to your class. I love to visit schools. Of course, Lila will have to drive me because she is the one with the driver's license. Phee Phew!
