THE DAY HAS COME!
We've waited for this day for more than 25 years, and it has finally arrived! Our education birds and rehab birds now have a new, state-of-the-art home! Thanks to Pat and Byron Funnell for allowing us to overstay our welcome these many years.
This month, we highlight the commissary, where our Avian Care team prepares all the birds' meals each day. The old commissary was outdoors, cramped, and had a leaky roof, and the birds' view of the outdoor environment was very limited. Each and every day, without exception, our dedicated volunteers braved below-freezing temperatures in winter and scorching summer heat to give our education and rehab birds the best care possible. Now, volunteers can do their work indoors in a state-of-the-art facility that will be efficient and easy to clean and maintain. The new habitats for the birds are easier to clean, and have a view of the outdoors, and that's a big win for the birds in our care.
Because there are still some final touches needed in the critical care/ICU area of the new facility, those birds haven't moved in yet. We'll keep you posted!
