People aren't the only ones having trouble with the recent storms. This morning the clinic was inundated with soaked and freezing wildlife, mostly baby birds blown from their nests. We heard reports that some of birds that didn't make it, but the survivors have been showing up since we opened at 8 AM.
But it's not just the birds-this morning we had a visit from a very water logged and grumpy wood chuck who apparently couldn't find high ground, along with a young raccoon.
Remember to never try to care for injured or orphaned wildlife yourself-we have an army of experienced and licensed wildlife rehabilitators who do a wonderful job providing care for immediate needs, and for the ultimate goal of successfully releasing animals back into the wild.
See our Wildlife page for more details, and how to reach rehabilitators.
