A friend found a nest of baby Carolina Wrens in his van. Knowing that I have a bird and have raised birds, he asked it I would take them. He didn’t think the parents would find them if the van was closed up.
I was Momma for an evening and a morning. Even though I hand raised Lovebirds, I know I am not qualified to take care of and rehabilitate a wild bird. They need to learn how to take care of themselves and be released back into the wild. I guess that’s the next thing I need to learn.
My neighbor and friend, Debbie, made some calls and gave me the name of a lady in Altamonte Springs, FL that took in injured or orphaned wildlife. I called her, explained what I had , and she said to bring them over. She came highly recommended.
I had no idea that she took in so many kinds of wildlife. Go to her website and check it out. www.havenonline.org I am just reading her newsletter, and after seeing the kind of work they do…with all the animals I see in my back yard…I am going to become a member. I like helping out local organizations. This is definately one that is worth supporting.
Many thanks for all you do at The Haven for Injured and Orphaned Wildlife.
