Wildlife Rescue, Rehabilitation, and Release
Our Wildlife program begins when an orphaned or injured wild bird is identified. If assistance is necessary to safely capture a bird a trained volunteer is identified to assist. When the bird arrives at Fallen Feathers a heath evaluation is completed to identify any concerns. Medical care is administered at Fallen Feathers within our capabilities. Birds with major injuries are referred to Dr. Frank, an avian doctor who donates her services to us. Birds are cared for until capable of surviving on their own. For orphaned baby birds, care will include several weeks frequent hand feedings. When birds are ready to survive on their own they are released back into the wild. Birds that are unable to survive in the wild are provided a permanent home within Fallen Feathers.
Exotic Rescue, Rehabilitation, and Adpotion
Orphaned exotic birds of all types and sizes are accepted and cared for in a safe environment. Volunteers support in the feeding, cleaning, and general needs for these birds. It is important to Fallen Feathers to find the right adoption home for each exotic bird taken in. For this reason there is no fee associated with an adoption. In place of a fee there is a rigorous adoption policy that begins by volunteering with the birds to identify best bird to bond with.
Educating the public about birds is an important part of the Fallen Feathers mission. Our education program includes speaking engagements with schools, church groups, scout troops, clubs, organizations, and public events. Wild birds that are not releasable are licensed with the State to be education birds. They are then taken to various events for viewing by the public to help increase awareness about the birds.
