Last week our clinic manager Andrea and our educational bird trainer Rayelene were filmed for an episode of Happy Tails for the Ann Arbor CTN network! Our ambassador blue jay, Blue, even made a guest appearance! During the show, Andrea talks about her experience with birds, the operations of the Bird Center, volunteer opportunities, and more. Check out the full video below!
Our young hummingbirds are still at the Center with us, where they are learning, growing, and thriving! They are still trying to figure out how to eat on their own, but we feed them every 15-20 minutes. The feathers around their faces are coming in and they are fluttering their tiny wings as fast as they can!
Our chimney swifts are exceptionally talkative this morning!
Thanks to our wonderful staff and volunteers, we’ve made the hectic move back to our normal location. Many thanks to the Ann Arbor Animal Hospital for generously allowing us to use their facilities, and thank you to all the volunteers who shared their time helping us move!
If you need assistance with a bird, please call us at our regular phone number – 734.761.9640.
Today the Bird Center temporarily moved out of our building so it can be used for the election on Tuesday, August 6th. With the help of our amazing staff and volunteers, we transported all of our birds and supplies to a local vet hospital down the road. We’ll be staying there until mid-day on Wednesday, August 7th.
We try to not accept many birds while we’re away, and we refer out only to prevent any disruption at the vet hospital. If truly needed, though, we will meet you outside in the parking lot to collect a bird from you and have you fill out a brief intake form.
Again, we will not be at our regular location from Sunday, August 4th until Wednesday, August 7th, except for moving purposes. To contact the Bird Center during the time we are gone, you can call our temporary phone line at 734.882.5085.
Thank you for your cooperation, and we apologize for the inconvenience!
