all in their nest. Usually it's one or two in the nest and the others scattered around the pen. The moment I took the shot they dispersed. As you can see, the WILD BUNCH is growing and looking more like adults. They still have a ways to go, especially the two youngest ones. I'm still cutting up a dozen mice three times a day for them. I've tried whole mice but they just can't seem to get them down in one piece.
Today, when I went in to give them their lunch, the oldest one chased me around trying to foot my leg. The little stinker but then he's just showing me how much he's grown in size and attitude.
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.
