Help SWR feed baby birds

Sierra Wildlife Rescue’s Baby Bird Nursery will open May 1, and numerous volunteers are needed.

The nursery at 3030 Newtown Road in Placerville takes in 500 to 600 baby birds every year that are fed about every half hour, seven days a week, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Volunteers do two to four-hour shifts, daily, weekly, or even monthly, on whatever schedule works best for them.

Hands-on training with experienced nursery staff and volunteers is available every Wednesday at 5 p.m., May through July.  This year, as well as songbirds, we will be taking in woodpecker, quail, pigeon and dove babies. If you have a special love for these cute species it will be even more fun to feed them.

If you have a couple of hours to spare to help feed the babies contact Barbara Barker at (530) 621-2650, or at  bsb@d-web.com.
