Our fox kit has opened her eyes, and is exploring her surroundings. One of the baby squirrels is also wide eyed and taking in the sights!
This week a bald eagle was found in the Hunt Valley area with minor injuries to the wing. This is a big boy, weighing in at 11 lbs! We brought it to the Hunt Valley Animal Hospital for a full evaluation and as of today, March 17, he is back in the clinic, being kept closely contained and quiet. He's doing great and we expect a full recovery.
Currently we take our large raptors to an offsite flight cage, but several years ago we raised funds for a new flight cage that will finally be constructed at our new location. See a video for a similar cage here.
From eagles to robins – this one was hit by a car. Note the cardboard box and paper toweling. This is the best way to transport a bird. A closed box keeps it quiet during transport and its claws won't get stuck in the paper towels the way they would in a fabric towel or washcloth.
