Review for Blue Mountain Wildlife, Pendleton, OR, USA
I first saw Blue Mountain staff bringing raptors to events around Pendleton. I so enjoyed hearing their amazing rescue stories, but also learned so much from them about hunters can make a big difference by using copper instead of lead bullets so that birds don't ingest lead when feeding on coyotes, squirrels or other animals that have been shot and left behind. Made us feel guilty but changed how we bought ammo. Then, a friend told us they had an injured owl in their yard in Weston. We took it down to Blue Mountain and they took it in, talked to us in such a caring way about the injury (ran into an electical wire) and told us the prognosis wasn't very good. Still, I knew they cared so much about the birds they cared for and I knew they would do all they possibly could. Since then I've donated to BMW, but so wish they could get larger grants to fund their fabulous work. People bring injured wild birds from long distances, and BMW will even give them info about putting the birds on a bus to get help! Unbelievable. Lynn and her crew are amazing people. We, and our wildlife, owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to them.
