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.

January 3, 2011

Wow another year has come and gone.  Great things continue to happen at Wild Bird Rescue.  First, we have two new educational birds...Eastern Screech Owls.  One is a red phase and the other a gray phase.  The owls will take their rightful place in the education mew as soon as they are ready.  Secondly, Wild Bird Rescue has plans to build a new raptor aviary and a new shorebird aviary.  Hopefully construction will begin in 2011.  As for me?  I am still the same old fabulous Missi.  Be on the look out for me in 2011.  I'll be out at numerous events and presentations.  Hope to see you soon!  Phee Phew!
