And then there were four all together. These four GHO babies are all about the same age. The two in the back are SPRUCE and PINEY from Gillette. The others came in yesterday, PICKLE and SPARKY. In a few days they will join foster mom, SMIDGE and another baby a bit older, TINKER TOY. They should all be flying in a week or so and then their training begins. Now to find the perfect place for them to be released.....
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.
