Although "baby season" has slowed down a bit, we're still busy around the clock at NY Wildlife Rescue. The cottontails are still breeding, as well as a few of our other more prolific species. Older babies are venturing out and getting into trouble. Adults and old-timers run into difficulties and wind up in our care. Then there are the turtles -- we are seeing more turtles this year than ever before. Please, drivers, give turtles a brake! They can't scurry out of your way like a squirrel, after all.
Wes is at the Irish Festival/Irish Cultural Center all weekend (May 27 & 28), set up with the Wildlife Wagon and the raptors! If you're in East Durham for the festival, stop by and say hello!
We had a great day on Saturday at Schodack Island State Park. The Raptor Festival in conjunction with the Capital Region Audubon Society went very well. Our new set-up was a great success.
