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!
I FIRST MET SUSAN ABOUT 10 YRS AGO. I HAD FOUND AN INJURED PIDGEON AND WAS GIVEN HER NAME BY A VETERINARIAN TO CONTACT CONCERNING THE BIRDS CARE AND PROGNOSIS.I FOUND SUSAN TO BE VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND HELPFUL IN THE CARE AND REHABILITAION OF "PIDGE".SHE HELPED ME TO DECIDE WHAT WAS WAHT WAS BEST FOR PIDGE AND HAS BEEN A GREAT RESOURCE THROUGHOUT MY LIFE WITH PIDGE. SHE IS GENUINELY INTERESTED AND CONCERNED AS WELL AS BEING KNOWEDGEABLE AND PERSONALABLE AND IS A GREAT ASSET TO THE COMMUNITY.THANKS SUSAN FOR YOUR HARD WORK AND DEDICATION!!
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.
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.
