Quick update, to let you know that the new west-side rehab person I encountered in the Scrub Jay story below is Carol Goldstein, of the Birds of Prey Foundation in Broomfield. This organization --and its very dedicated people--does great work! And, as most nonprofits, they always need donations. Besides the much appreciated dollars that help them do their work, they also have a wish list of items they need to help the many birds they care for each year. If you can help, please let them know.
Carol is new in the area, but fortunately for me--and the young scrub jay--she has great background in songbirds as well. She can be reached via CoRaptorRescue@hotmail.com.
