The fundraiser is going well; we’re at $1020 as of this morning—almost halfway there! And we really need the funds—as of yesterday, we hit 219 intakes thus far this year. That’s the GRAND TOTAL of intakes for 2015, and we still have the tail-end of baby season and then migration to deal with. Thanks to those who’ve donated already, and if you haven’t donated yet, remember your donations are tax-deductible!
An adult Mississippi kite came in with a nasty wing fracture. The bone was snapped right at the joint and the wrist faced backwards when he tried to move the wing. The only release we could offer was an end to his suffering.
This red-shoulder hawk was hit by a car and although he was transported to LWR posthaste, it was still too late. He died en route, shortly before the volunteer transporter arrived here.
