On Tuesday, June 1, I took the donations that was collected to Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research in Newark, Delaware. I drove down this long shady road with large trees on both sides. The road dead ended at the Frink Center for Wildlife, the home of Tri-State.
When I walked into the building I saw this large glass window, where I saw a few of the staff members feeding four baby robins some water with a small paint brush that they dipped into the water and let the water drip into their mouths. I was then greeted by a staff member. I introduced myself and told her that I was bringing the donations that we collected from the Wildlife drive. They were very appreciative.
I asked for a tour the facility. She said that they do not allow visitors to walk around the grounds near the birds. They dont want the birds to get startled and possibly re-injur themselves or get use to humans. She did however, walk me up to the outside deck which over looked many of the birdhouses.
All of the birds at Tri-State are rescued, rehabilitated, than released back into the wild, except for one Ishta who is a Peregrine Falcon, who can not fly very well, so he has become a permanent resident at Tri-State.
