Join Patty McLaughlin, Education Program Manager at the Ottawa Valley Wild Bird Care Centre, and Indigo, the American Kestrel, for a fact-filled evening about wild birds!
Small wild bird rehabilitation centres are scattered across the province providing a vital service for those birds who have been found injured, sick, or orphaned. This presentation will provide you with an inside look at the Ottawa Valley Wild Bird Care Centre and how they are able to give over 4,000 wild birds each year, a second chance at life!
Find out what to do if you find an injured bird, a suspected window collision bird, and how you can take simple actions to make your backyard safer and healthier for wild birds.
Nesting season is upon us and birds are busy making nests, laying eggs, and raising young everywhere around us! This presentation concludes with fun facts and many cute photos as we gain a greater understanding of the nesting behaviours of common backyard birds and you will be sure to have a good understanding of when a baby bird needs help and more importantly when it does NOT!
