On many occasions we have refered friends and neighbors with injured wild birds to Wild Wings Rehab Center. Their response, having experienced the Center first hand, is always one of delight and joy! From the Center's extreme cleanliness to the expert professionalism of Mrs. Susan Birch, WW's serves a vital role in the circle of care/compassion for our precious backyard feathered friends. Children of families who arrive with injured wildlife get a great beginning in the lessons of human responsibility toward caring and protecting the creatures God has placed in our stewardship! Bravo! Wild Wings, Bravo!

Susan is unsurpassed in her ethics, attention to detail, hard work, and all-around dedication to optimum health of birds in her care, and to the welfare of birds in the wild. I feel very fortunate to work with her as a colleague and friend.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

...the wealth of data that Susan has collected---data that can only come from almost unimaginably hard and extremely conscientious work, from dawn well past dark, seven days a week for months at a time.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the frequent, honest, constructive, imaginative, positive interactions which have improved our study and make its conclusions credible and replicable. Susan is advancing the frontiers of knowledge in a very meaningful way.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

observant, amazingly attentive to detail, extremely hard-working; and kindly and personable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the standard of care for hundreds of thousands of captive birds, and very much increase the success of captive breeding programs for threatened and endangered species.

In 2009, I attended the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council's annual education symposium at Virginia Beach. As a relatively new songbird rehabilitator (3 years at that time), I was eager for all information I could glean about songbird rehabilitation. Susan's class on songbird rehab was undoubtedly the most wonderful experience of the symposium. Not only was her knowledge impressive but also she is vitally concerned about the fate of all our songbirds, the most endangered group of animals in the wild. During the following year, I contacted Susan by email on several occasions asking questions about songbirds that I was rehabilitating. Probably the most memorable was a blue jay who had been in a cage for the first 5 years of it's life. Susan's advice helped me to successfully rehabilitate and release Jaybella to the wild. Although I have never visited Susan's rescue center, I have no doubt that it is professionally run and responsive to the needs of the community and the animals that it serves.
