SIERRA WILDLIFE RESCUE
March 5, 2011

My five year old son and I found a very small and weak baby bird while on a walk. It looked as though a predator had gotten to its nest and from the remains it did not look like the mother survived. My son became very upset and wanted to help. Looking at the condition of the little bird I did not think it could survive but we brought the little guy home anyway. I called SWR right away and they sprung into action! They gave us solid instruction on what to do and were willing to take our patient into their baby bird nursery. My son was worried about leaving the baby bird but the staff at SWR (mostly all volunteer) were warm and caring with him. they explained to him how they would take care of our friend and even gave my son a tour of the facilities, answering all his questions. The impact this made with him was just amazing. They even told us we could call and check up on the baby and check his progress. Our little guy made it and was released back into the wild but I am sure he would not have had a happy ending to his story if not for SWR. I appreciate so much the help they gave not just to a needy little bird but also to a little five year old boy who with SWR's help now knows he can make a difference.
