We became acquainted with the nice folks of Wild Bird Recovery after one of our kitties got to a fledgling bird as it was just learning to fly. Poor little birdie! We wanted to help him, but weren’t sure how. We called the local vets offices and finally one referred us to Wild Bird Recovery. We went in with our little baby bird and met Beth, a local volunteer who donates her time and her heart to helping wild birds.

Sadly, our little birdie did not survive. We learned that early spring through early fall is when the baby birds hatch and attempt to fly from their nests. The babies may not be able to fly well and usually stay close to where they land. The mother does not try to take the little fledgling back to the nest but brings him or her food and waits patiently to see the little birdie eventually fly away. So, this time of the year is the time that the baby birds are at their most vulnerable.

We wanted to help Wild Bird Rescue and thank them for their continued efforts in helping the birds in our area. So, I decided to donate a handpainted children’s rocking chair for auction at their yearly fundraiser. I put lots of birdies-some in flight, some in nests, lots of other woodland animals are hiding amongs the trees and branches. You will even see a bees nest and lots of honey bees flying around.

Thank you again Beth for all that you continue to do!
