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.

November 17, 2010

I had a great time at the PETS Pantry First Annual Community Food Drive and Purina Rally to the Rescue Event.  I met many very nice folks who were  interested in my story.  I especially enjoyed being the subject of so many photographs.  There was a mountain of pet food donated.  Wild Bird Rescue did pretty well too.  We sold several Audubon birds, WBR note cards, and our new 2011 Rescue Calendar.  Oh, by the way...did I tell you November is my favorite month in our new calendar?  November features ME!  If you would like to purchase a 2011 calendar then please call WBR at 940-691-0828.  Phee Phew!
