Wild Song Wildlife

When you rehab enough individuals of the same species, you begin to see the differences in their personalities. This Anna's nestling from last spring was usually persnickety, flipping her wings at us in annoyance, but eventually she agreed that eating politely was really the best choice for everyone involved.

This White Crowned Sparrow was admitted yesterday after being attacked by a cat. Did you know that cats' saliva contains a specific bacteria that is lethal to birds? If you ever rescue a bird from the mouth of a cat, even if it appears to be perfectly fine and unscathed, bring it in to a wildlife rehabilitation center and do not let it free. Small cat bites and punctures are near impossible to see with the naked eye underneath the plumage of a bird and it only takes one to kill a bird. A bird will usually die within 6 hours if not treated with antibiotics.

Our saw whet owl patient who is suffering from torticollis is looking better every day! (Yes, the one from the treadmill video 😊) Slow and steady progress with this little guy.
Torticollis is a severe head/neck tilt likely caused by trauma such as a window strike or being hit by a vehicle.

The little canal Pigeon who was rescued by the RSPCA yesterday is much brighter today. Her wing has been strapped up to help it heal, but should be fine in due course. 🐦❤#wildliferehabilitation #wildliferescue #pigeons

Cascades Raptor Center

This is a process called imping. This Rough-legged Hawk came to us missing almost all of his tail feathers. A new tail was made up of feathers dropped from our two residents. As our staff vet carefully monitors the hawk's breathing under anesthesia, the new feathers are carefully superglued onto the shafts of the old feathers. This bird will stay in human care until he molts out the imped feathers and grows in a new set of his own.

One of our great horned owl patients surrounded by donated trees - they really help provide a natural habitat while our patients are in care. Thank you to all who donated!

I met this adorable little harbour seal (Phoca vitulina) pup at Mallydams Wood Wildlife Centre in 2013. This centre is dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating injured and orphaned wild animals. This little girl was found abandoned and severely underweight and the staff at Mallydams were trying to help her gain more weight before they released her. The harbour seal is the most widely distributed species of pinniped and has distinctive V-shaped nostrils which are used to help distinguish them from other seal species. #seal #harbourseal #commonseal #pinniped #mammal #rspca #mallydams #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #zoophotography #canonphotography #rehabilitation #wildliferehabilitation #wildliferehab #animalphotography #animalkingdom #animals #animalsofinstagram #pinnipedsofinstagram #animallover #animaladdict #cuteanimals

A blast from the past, this was 'Charlee' not long after she came into care, now she has her own joey at foot. She still remains very close to me, visiting every day. Her mothering is not the best but it could be she is a first time mum and that because she was an orphan she may not have her own experience to draw upon, I have watched this before with other orphans I have raised and released. The maternal bond may not be instinctive but that of behaviour....

Just when I thought it was time to cuddle into my comfy fleece/cotton/branch nest, mom comes in with a #pecan. She says it's a win-win because cracking the #shell is good for my teeth. I'll take it!

This adult male Great-horned Owl arrived for care after being found on a roadside being attacked by ravens. It was assumed the bird was hit by car based on fresh bruising to the left lower eyelid, left ear and fresh blood free floating in the right eye. However, the massive opaque injury to the left eye is presumed to be a traumatic cataract from a very old injury which has likely led to significant visual impairment. The bird was negative for any fluorescene stain uptake but the likelihood of release is virtually nonexistent. This one needs a miracle.

This Northern Saw-whet Owl arrived into care with an old eye injury. The eye had sustained a corneal puncture resulting in a lens luxation and complete, non-reversible blindness in the eye, rendering her non-releasable.
Last week our staff veterinarian performed an enucleation of the eye. The bird is set to become an education bird for a fantastic raptor center in Colorado and is doing very well post-op!

Announcing our newest resident - Bumpkin the Virginia opossum! A former pet kept by well intentioned folks who didn't realize keeping her was illegal, she is warming up to her new home and settling in really well. As North America's only marsupial, she will make an amazing addition to the education ambassador team! #wildlifeimages #savingwildlife #wildliferehabilitation #opossum #opossumsofinstagram #wildlifeeducation #home #marsupial

Because I'm feeling sentimental these days. Feeding our soft released #fawns allowing them to wander the property and learn to browse on their own, but still supplementing their diet. When they hear that call they know food's ready. #lovemyjob #wildliferehabilitation #missingoklahoma #fawnwhisperer

Our newest patient at the center is this Herring Gull. He was likely hit by a car and has a fractured wing and foot. His fractures have been stabilized and he will be treated with pain meds and lots of nutritious food such as fresh caught fish and clam! He will be in our care for about 6-8 weeks as he heals from his injuries. #gulls #gull #herringgull #birds #birdsofinstagram #wildlife #wildliferehab #wildliferehabilitation #animals #animalrescue #volunteersforwildlife
