Harriet

Harriet was admitted to the hospital in the summer of 2018 after being hit by a car, and thus sustained some significant damage to her left wing, and costed her one of her toes. The fracture in her wing was originally pinned for healing, but it became apparent that the damage was extensive enough that it limited her mobility.

Yay fresh paint!
New Bird Room!

For the past few months, the Education Department has been collecting donations primarily from Facebook posts. Our supporters are incredibly generous, and Erin and I were really touched by your contributions. We wanted to let you know that your contributions went to a very big need!
