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.

February 16, 2011

Lila went to Lubbock to pick up a new Eastern Screech Owl on Sunday. The owl was found by a DPS Trooper so South Plains Wildlife Rehabilitation Center named her Trooper. I am going to have to get used to the fact that Lila will be sharing her time with the both of us now. Wild Bird Rescue has an awesome group of educational birds in training for future programs. Our new program will be called Ambassadors of the Sky. It will include two Eastern Screech Owls, Moonblink the Barred Owl, and me of course. Now when schools request a program, they don't get just me but 4 birds of prey. Welcome to Trooper and glad you are here with us. Phee Phew!  Thanks to Elizabeth Hawley for the photo of Trooper.
