Happy Thanksgiving

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped make 2013 one of the most successful years ever at St. Francis Wild Bird Hospital.

We had a very high volume of birds come in, just under 200 (with still another month to go before the year has ended), and the facility is now in the process of being scrubbed down and sanitized in preparation for 2014.

A great many thanks goes to Those Guys Of Lyme, the intrepid group of volunteers from Lyme, N.H., and their wonderful gift of a raptor enclosure, which members built themselves. As we expand and grow, we are in great need of cages, and we are most grateful for this brand-new mew designed for adult raptors.

Also, many thanks to all of the loyal volunteers who come back every year to feed the multitudes of baby birds that we get in during late spring and early summer. Your help is always appreciated.

A very Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
