Arrivals on May 23rd

From Wes:

Newest Arrivals. 3 baby Robins that should have never been disturbed. A starling and a mole. Baby opossums. Mom hit by car.

The little Robins would have fledged (left the nest for good) within a short time, with a little patience. Instead, the nest was removed. Their chances of surviving in the wild have gone down, because they won’t have their natural parents to teach them.

The Migratory Bird Treaty Act, a US Federal Law, prohibits the disturbance of an active bird nest, in addition to protecting the birds themselves. [ http://sialis.org/mbta.htm ]
