Help baby birds this summer

Spring is here and Sierra Wildlife Rescue’s Baby Bird Nursery will open its doors in early May.

Classes on feeding and caring for the orphaned babies will be held in April at the following times:  April 6, 10 a.m. to noon; April 9, 7 to 9 p.m.; April 20, 1 to 3 p.m.; and April 23, 7 to 9 p.m. You only need to attend one class to qualify.

The nursery takes in hundreds of orphaned or injured nestlings or fledglings each year at SWR’s Wildlife Center, 3030 Newtown Road in Placerville, and numerous volunteers are always needed. As a volunteer, you will learn to feed and care for the babies until they are fully-fledged and eating on their own. After that, they will be transferred to large flight cages at rehabbers’ properties until they are old enough to care for themselves, and then released back to the wild.

Call Barbara Barker at (530) 621-2650 to register for training.
