We hope that everyone is having a great holiday weekend! Even though yesterday was Thanksgiving, our team is always on call. This ground dove was brought to Mission Wild Bird last night with a broken humerus in it's right wing. The ‪#‎dove‬'s wing has been wrapped, and our team is hoping for a quick recovery. Thank you to everyone that helped to make this holiday ‪#‎bird‬ ‪#‎rescue‬ possible! ‪#‎FKWBC‬ ‪#‎KeepThemFlying‬

This beautiful belted kingfisher (Megaceryle alcyon) came to our hospital with head trauma and it was unable to stand or use it's legs. Although the kingfisher is not completely ready to be released, it is making HUGE strides and will likely be released in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for future updates! ‪#‎KeepThemFlying‬ ‪#‎Bird‬ ‪#‎Rescue‬

Our Education Team has been super busy over the last few weeks, but then again October is National Field Trip Month, so we shouldn't be all that surprised! Whether we're giving tours to groups of visiting students or we're traveling to do in-class programs, our ‪#‎Education‬ Team reaches thousands of students each year. If you'd like more information about scheduling a program for a group of students or social club (typically includes an Animal Ambassador presentation), please contact our Education Coordinator, Ian Martin.

This grebe is adorable! Luckily this little ‪#‎grebe‬ won't be at our facility for too much longer. It came into our hospital yesterday with the slightest cases of exhaustion and malnutrition, and it will likely be released within the next day or two. #KeepThemFlying   #Birds   #rescue

Please join us in congratulating Kayla Gainer, Wildlife Rehabilitator, on the recent issuance of both the State and Federal permits that recognize her hard work, experience and qualifications needed be recognized as the primary caretaker and rehabilitator of the birds in our care. Kayla has worked diligently for the past three years at the Bird Center learning to rescue, rehabilitate and release our beautiful wild birds. Her hard work paid off and the State and Federal agencies easily and expeditiously authorized her application for the permits. Great job Kayla and thank you for helping us to   #KeepThemFlying  !!!

Almost two weeks ago this magnificent frigatebird was found floating in the waters of Biscayne Bay and acting oddly. After taking in the ‪#‎frigatebird‬ we found it to be extremely emaciated and acting lethargic to the point that it was struggling to lift it's head. After some much needed R&R, this frigatebird is looking much more magnificent, putting on weight, and likely to be released soon. Thank you to everyone that made this ‪#‎bird‬ ‪#‎rescue‬ possible! ‪#‎KeepThemFlying‬
