Re: Oriole release
- I received a very nice thank you note from Debbie, the woman who works
for Pacific Wildlife Care in San Luis Obispo County, who was looking for
a good place to release a rehabilitated Hooded Oriole. Apparently, the
bird was raised by a couple in SLO county who did not relinquish the
bird until after the orioles had already migrated from that area.
She wanted to let us know how appreciative she was with all the
responses she received. The bird was successfully released in Huntington
Central Park where there were still orioles around as well as plenty of
insects for them to feed upon. She said, "I have to tell you, this
experience has been a very heartwarming one for me, to know that there
are so many others who truly care about our birds."
