Back home again
Thanks to Quintin Blair, the younger, two baby sparrows are back in their nest way up in the Holiday Inn sign. Found on the ground, and much too young to be there, Quin called me for help. When I saw where the nest is located he volunteered to make the climb and replace them in their nest. It's right in front of him behind the zig-zag post he's hanging on to. There were others in the nest so the replaced babies had company. Thanks to Quin for making this possible. He carried them up there in the paper bag.
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.
