The Wildlife Center is Hiring!
Test Your Bird ID Skills!
One of the (many) things our front desk coordinators do is help identify wildlife. People call in with descriptions or e-mail photos of animals they encounter, with hopes that we can help them identify the species and, often, determine if the animal needs help. IDing animals from photos can be challenging and fun ... but most of all, it can help us figure out if the animal needs help. Knowing the species is key to knowing whether or not a certain animal is displaying normal behavior.
This photo landed at our front desk for ID. The bird was on the ground and the caller was concerned. Can you correctly ID the species? Find the answer at the end of the newsletter.
