The Nest is Best!
It is the time of year for baby birds! Most babies are just fine, even if you find them on the ground. Much of the time they are learning to fly – and just like humans learning to ride a bike – they fall down a lot. They need to be left alone because their parents are nearby to help them. But if you see possible injuries or a threat (cat or dog), then putting them back in their nest is the best thing to do. Click here to to our FAQ page for information on what to do if you find baby birds. We also have contacts if you need help. The picture above is Great Horned Owls whose nest was blown down by a storm. BPRC came out, built a new nest in the tree and they successfully fledged!
A Second Chance! Fundraiser for Rehabilitation
A Second Chance! Ribs n’ Raptors Fundraiser for rehabilitation is on Saturday, November 12th. Please join us from 11:30 to 2pm for BBQ (of course!), drinks, music and a great time to raise funds for raptor rehabilitation at BPRC.
We have received more than 325 patients so far and may come close to 400 by the end of the year. And this is our first year open for raptor rehabilitation. We expect the numbers to increase next year as more people learn about our facility as the place to bring injured, sick and orphaned birds. This means more food, medicine and vet visits!
There will be a raffle, silent auction and live auction including opportunities for private tours and photography sessions with our education birds, artwork and much more!
Please pre-register by November 8th on our Ribs n Raptors page.
Cost: $75/person Family of four $250
SPONSORSHIP! We are in need of sponsorship for this event. If you are interested in helping please contact Erich Neupert, Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for supporting BPRC and its mission and we look forward to seeing you soon.
