WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - A local wildlife rehabilitation organization celebrated the beginning of Spring Saturday and the beginning of baby bird season.
Wild Bird Rescue held its baby bird shower Saturday. People came out to see different kinds of birds like hawks, vultures and owls. The shower was also a time of giving as people brought out different cleaning supplies that will allow the organization to keep the birds living spaces in good shape.
Director of Rehabilitation, Ginger McConnell, said she is overwhelmed by the response of the community.
"It's amazing. We love having everybody come out here, see the birds, help support us, bring us supplies, donations," she said. "It's just amazing the outreach and support we get from the public."
The rescue center has an average of 2,000 birds pass through every year and cares for up to 200 birds at one time. This is their fourth year to put on the shower and they are grateful for every donation they receive as they approach their busiest time of year.
