Goodbye 2015

We are ending 2015 the same way it started: busier than usual. This week brought 6 new admissions: 4 Western Screech Owls, a Red-tailed Hawk and a Barn Owl for a total of 946 admissions to date. The little Western Screech Owl below is one of the lucky ones who is making a full recovery after colliding with a car.

Food for Thought

I recently heard about a live, interactive radio show called Talkin’ Birds. It is the source of these numbers regarding bird fatalities in the lower 48 states: 

350,000 birds are killed annually by wind turbines

7 million birds are killed annually by radio and TV towers, cell towers and power lines

3.7 billion birds are killed annually by cats  Keeping Cats Indoors is one way to make a significant positive difference in the songbird and small raptor populations in your neighborhood.
