Welcome 2019 Intern Staff!

Here we have seven of our 20 interns, and each are all so amazing! Each intern has a unique quality, and combining that with each other makes this entire team an extraordinary asset to the Bird Center!

Summer Hours

The Bird Center is now open from 7am – 9pm; intake hours are 7:30am – 8:00pm, 8:30pm if local. Please do not bring a bird to the Center without speaking directly to a staff member first.

If you have found an injured or thought to be abandoned bird, please keep it in a stress-free environment and in a contained enclosure without any food or water until you’ve spoken to a wildlife rehabilitator.

If you need immediate assistance near the Washtenaw County area, you can contact the Humane Society of Huron Valley or the Howell Nature Center. You can also contact any rehabber on the Michigan DNR website.

Mallard Ducklings Hatch!

Yesterday interns Allison and Jenna walked in to a lovely surprise – three mallard ducklings hatched, and one was in the process! The Bird Center currently has close to 12 viable eggs in our egg incubator. We also received an egg candler off our Amazon Wish List to help us identify the eggs better!

Check out the video below to see the ducklings and learn how we candle eggs! 🐣

The Bird Center is now open!

We will continue for one more week being open from 7:30am – 8:30pm – intake hours are 8:00am-8:00pm. Calls and intakes are still slow but the migrants are coming and we are prepared! Starting 5/15 we will be open 7am – 9pm; intake hours will be 7:30am – 8:00pm, 8:30pm if local.
