Ducklings at our wildlife centers

With the arrival of the year’s first ducklings, baby bird season is upon us again, and we need your help.

Landscaped yards, road medians and industrial landscaping have replaced many natural nesting areas for waterfowl. After their eggs hatch, ducks and geese walk their young to the water facing man-made obstacles such as storm drains, fences, cars, pets and people. Hazards like these leave hundreds of wild ducklings and goslings orphaned each year, and International Bird Rescue is honored to take responsibility for their care and subsequent release. But we can’t do it alone.

Volunteer coordinator and ace photographer Cheryl Reynolds snapped a few photos of our recent arrivals. Enjoy! (And adopt!)

It is the generosity of donors like you that makes this life-saving work possible.
