Their new digs
The six baby Chickadees are now in a much larger place so they can try out their wings. It's the Reptarium on loan from Sara, originally for my little bat, YODETTE and now working perfectly for these teeny birds. The very small one is still hanging on, the rest will probably be flying sooner rather than later. And they have a small glass dish full of mealworms and chopped up sunflower seeds so when they feel the urge to self feed it's there for them.
Born in Downers Grove, IL, I moved to Cody in 1981 after living in Boulder, CO for many years. As I enjoyed the outdoors and spent many weeks up in Wyoming going on horsepacking trips with friends, I decided to move here. I started Ironside Bird Rescue in 1987 after finding an orphaned Starling baby that had fallen out of its nest near my house. One thing led to another and after all these years the facility now has many different sized mews and flight barns for the exercise of raptors so they will be strong enough for release. I live in a 130+ year old log cabin with a corgi mix dog, her mother, a purebread corgi, a couple cats and many birds in a free flight aviary attached to the house. I'm now retired from a "real job". Along with rehabbing birds, I spend a lot of hours volunteering at our local Buffalo Bill Historical Center in the graphics department.
