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 am so excited! Tomorrow's the big day! Have I piqued your curiosity yet? I am moving out to my outside mew. The early morning temperatures have warmed up enough for me to finally get outside. Yippee!!! Of course Lila will still have to watch the weather. It's still possible for a late freeze, which I absolutely can't stand. If that happens, I'll have to come inside for the night. Phee Phew!
I have been a volunteer at Wild Bird Rescue (WBR) for 4 years. Currently I serve as the Education Development Coordinator. I have my state, federal, and educational permits. When not at WBR, I am also a dyslexia specialist at Jefferson Elementary School. My goal is to education the public about our avian ambassador, Missi.
