Sep 7 - Sep 13

Baby Bird Season has ended and Broken Bird Season is here. 

Business really is slowing down. There were just nine new admissions this past week and two days when no new patients arrived. We often don’t know how a bird has been injured, but some of the causes this week were hit by car, gunshot, window strike and collision with an unknown object.

Farewell Jenae


We said goodbye to intern Jenae and wished her well as she returned to Yakima to complete the second year of a veterinary technician program. In addition to working incredibly long hours, she and Samantha did lots of rearranging and organizing to make room for the new x-ray system. Fortunately, Samantha will be here (keeping the clinic running smoothly) through October.

It Takes A Village 

It truly takes a village to run a wildlife rehabilitation center. Volunteers from throughout eastern Oregon and Washington donate dozens of hours of their time and drive hundreds of miles transporting birds to BMW’s Tri-Cities and Pendleton centers. Interns and volunteers spend thousands of hours working at the centers. Donations from BMW members and supporters provide services and the funds needed to purchase food and medical supplies and countless other items. Thank you to everyone who makes it possible for Blue Mountain Wildlife to serve the wildlife and people of our region. You are an awesome team!

Some Of The Broken Birds 

This Great Horned Owl was shot. Can you find 13 shotgun pellets? Hint: there’s one in the head.

This Great Horned Owl was most likely hit by a vehicle.
