Okay everyone. What do you do if you find a baby bird in Denver? You contact W.I.L.D. Bird, Denver's non-profit informational and rehab center, of course. Their website alone offer good tips on how to handle lost or wounded birds, but the group actually will take your found bird and attempt to rehab and release it. That costs doesn't happen cheaply -- it runs about $40 per bird.
This group needs our help. Their board of directors says they need to raise more money, so that the rescue can continue to keep its lease at 1880 S Quebec. They are still short about $5,000, according to their web page goal meter.
If this group fails to raise the money it needs, more that 3000 injured and displaced wild birds from the Denver region will have no place to go this summer. If you want to help, please go to their website (link above) and make a paypal donation.
Broke and charitable giving isn't an option right now? They also need volunteers of all sorts, especially volunteers with ideas for fund-raisers, and expertise in grant writing. They need donations of products too. Please help this tireless rescue, which is always willing to lend a hand to our beautiful feathered friends.
Please keep in mind that WILD Bird doesn't officially open until May 1, when the baby birds start to arrive. See their website for more info.
