You would swear this baby snowshoe hare was a #toy, right?  Fun factoid:  One of the main differences between hares and rabbits is that rabbits are born naked and blind, hares are born furry and with their eyes open.  This is a very young hare.

We were too early for our ferry so ended up by chance at the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre. They do great work! This particular eagle, Sandor, was found on the highway with his right wing so extensively damaged that he can never fly again. He is now part of the glove program. However, the Centre has state of the art treatment and rehab facilities. It is impressive and I highly recommend a visit! #wildlife #eagles #vancouverisland #wildliferehabilitation

Sully the Red Tailed Hawk goes back to the wild - freedom at last!! This morning, I went with Scott, another volunteer, and took Sully south to Sahuarita to be released. We put the carrier down, opened the front, and...nothing. Once we pulled him out on to the top of the carrier, he realized that he was free and took off, soaring into a large mesquite tree.
So proud of this Red Tailed Hawk that was found down on the tarmac at the airport after being hit by an airplane. Being a part of his rehabilitation has been a long road and lot of work but also infinitely rewarding. So glad to see him go back into the wild where he belongs. Happy hunting Sully!!

Our volunteer, Jodi, has been a huge help as usual for many lengthy transports lately! Dr. April Steele, with Tugaloo Animal Hospital, P.C., is a permitted wildlife rehabilitator and received a young fox that was sadly orphaned. She found a transporter, Bill, to drive from Lavonia to Cordele to meet Jodi. She drove from Cordele to a wildlife rehabilitation center known as Androcle's Society in Thomasville, Georgia. The fox will receive further care here until he or she is ready to be released. Much thanks to everyone for their contribution!!!

I've been blessed to temporarily rehabilitate this fledgling (teenage) hummingbird. I'm assuming he bailed from his nest due to a mite infestation. I could not locate the nest after waiting for his mother to return after about an hour. (I really did try to do my best to reconnect him with his mother). I decided it would be best to take him in. In this video I'm slowly swabbing his body and a little on his beak with bird treatment for mites. I've also ordered Nektar Plus (with protein) food meant specifically for nectar birds in rehabilitation. Hummingbirds cannot survive on just electrolyte sugar water.
I live in Los Angeles and there are no hummingbird rehabilitation centers. I hope with loving care and the right treatment, we can rehabilitate him, while also educating people who find hummingbirds. I've searched several places online about taking care of hummingbirds, and I've only seen things such as "you are not qualified to take care of hummingbirds" etc etc; my problem with this is there are zero places to bring him in the LA area, so I hope I can educate others in how to care for orphaned hummingbirds. (Yes I understand that it is illegal for me to have a hummingbird in my possession, but I don't see anyone wanting to help). With that said, anyone who has any knowledge of taking care of hummingbirds would be greatly appreciated. With the research I've done, I believe he is a fledgling Calliope hummingbird. He seems to be doing doing well so far. Much love.❤️ @duh._its._camden @flaky_butter_biscuit .

Very close to newborn snowshoe hare brought to me this afternoon after being caught by a cat.  This might just be the cutest thing you see all week!

Yesterday was also an exciting day because we moved our first group of fledgling Red-tailed Hawks into our large flight. This flight is the largest avian rehabilitation flight in California. At 230 ft. long, this is where young Redtails will learn to fly and hunt before going #backtothewild . #wildliferehabilitation #redtails #ojai

It's #triviatuesday! Our question for today is: Many bird species have eggs that are camouflaged. Bald eagles do not; their eggs are white. Why is this? Check back on our next post for the answer! Featured are two resident bald eagles at #bluemountainwildlife, incubating an (infertile) egg. #wildliferehab #pendleton Photo by @caresy

Happy #worldturtleday!
Throwback to 2011, when @jessiegal86 and I were volunteer sea-turtle-carers @jcu, fattening up sick and injured green turtles for release back into the ocean 🌊🐢 Please report any sick (or dead!) sea turtles to the marine stranding hotline on 1300 ANIMAL. #vollies #wildliferehabilitation #taggedturtle #jcuturtlehealth #reefhq #turtlerelease #townsvilleshines #greenturtle #marinewildliferescue #vulnerablespecies #endangeredspecies #queensland

Sometimes it's a group effort to rescue wildlife! A weak mottled duckling was found by itself Sunday in a PGI yard. Then Monday morning, just three streets over some other residents found more. Mom had been taken by a gator, but the babies were fast and kept disappearing under the water and popping up further away. One of our rescuers helped catch 4. The last 2 couldn't be caught until later by the homeowners but quickly joined their family of 7 ducklings!
They're all doing well but very scared right now. Send good thoughts for these babies.

We admitted this Eastern Fence Lizard after she was stuck ... in a fence. Turns out she's pregnant and couldn't fit her belly through the fence! She was quickly treated and released back to the wild so she can get ready to lay her eggs. #lizard #expecting #lizardsofinstagram #wildlife #virginiawildlife #🦎 #wildliferehabilitation #easternfencelizard

This pair of robin fledglings came in after their nest was knocked out of a tree. Attempts to reunite them with their mother were unsuccessful, so now we are raising the babies.
