Hospital update–week of May 27

The hospital received 291 animals last week, bringing the total to 2119 for this year.

We are starting to see lots of fledgling birds coming out of their nests before they can fly very well. This is a normal and necessary part of growing up for these birds. Keep people and pets away so the parents will feel comfortable coming down to feed their offspring. It usually takes only a couple of days for most birds to master flight skills and join their parents off the ground.
