Cooper's hawk rescued chick

Here is a video of another of our birds currently in rehab. In most cases, the best thing for baby birds is to be left alone. Most of the time their parents are still caring for them, and birds don't have a great sense of smell. They won't abandon their chicks because they "smell" like humans.

I love reading about the different things WBS does, and about the different animals. Could there be a "behind the scenes" post? I'd like to learn about what a "typical" day is like for WBS staff members!

Keep up the great work!!

Ok, that is a GREAT idea! I'll see what I can do.
