We have officially entered busy season!
Right now, our intake area is full of injured or ill birds that need care. From cleaning cages to feeding baby birds, there is always something to do. In just the past week, we have received two Red-Tailed Hawks, a Red-Shouldered Hawk, four American Kestrel nestlings, and A LOT of songbirds! Some have injuries such as a broken wing or leg. Others are babies that are too young to survive on their own. Either way, we are doing everything we can to help them recover so that they can eventually be released!
Here are a few pictures of some of the birds that are in care at the Ohio Bird Sanctuary:
As hectic as it may be around here, I am so happy to be working at the Ohio Bird Sanctuary! Whitney and I are the two interns this summer. Whitney is a student at Purdue University, and I am a student at Mount Vernon Nazarene University. We will be using this blog to provide an intern’s perspective of what happens at the Ohio Bird Sanctuary this summer.
