Wild Bird Rescue throws “baby shower” for baby bird season

WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Baby bird season is here, which means Wild Bird Rescue by Lake Wichita needs help handling all the new arrivals.

Wild Bird Rescue is a non-profit rescue group that rehabilitates injured or captive wild birds for lives in the wild.

On Saturday, April 6, people came to the rescue to see the ambassador birds that live there permanently and to see how the Wild Bird Rescue takes care of the birds they're rehabilitating.

Donations ranged from money to different cleaning products. All of it helped Executive Director Jeff Bryant and the rescue field with the rush of birds they take at this time of year.

"This is when the baby birds are starting to hatch," Bryant said, explaining how birds come to the rescue for various reasons, including abandonment or falling from the nest. "In any given year, we take in between fifteen and 25 hundred birds," Bryant said.

Wild Bird Rescue takes in birds of all ages and sizes and is always in need of resources and volunteers.
