Yesterday was a rainy morning when we went for a “car picnic” at Boat Meadow Beach. It was raining pretty hard, but still so pretty. (Click on blog link for other photos.)
All of a sudden a car drove up and a lady pulled two cages out of the back of her car. It looked like Wild Care was going to release a bird on the beach. I didn’t get to speak with her as the raindrops were coming down pretty fast.
We watched as she carried the cages to the beach and released one seagull and then another. We watched them saunter around the beach and then both fly off. Wow!
Wild Care Cape Cod is amazing. The work they do to rehabilitate birds and animals is incredible and so wonderful to see their releases back into the wild.
Kudos to Wild Cape Cape Cod! We are all so fortunate to have you so close by!
Wild Care in Eastham on Cape Cod is a remarkable place in Eastham on Cape Cod. Their mission is:
“To help sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife through Wildlife Rehabilitation; to reduce the number of animals impacted by human activity through Educational Outreach; and to help protect the species and the ecosystems they represent through Advocacy and Conservation.”
Yesterday they had their annual “Baby Shower” for all of the little “wild ones” that they care for. It was so much fun! People brought things from paper towels to food to laundry detergent to gift cards for the center. I took this photograph at 10:30 and it was only the first 1/2 hour. Wow!
This is a photograph of the little Eastern Screech Owl named “Up-Up” that was brought to them in May. It cannot fly so it will be there permanently and used for Educational Outreach programs in the schools and organizations.
What an adorable little guy, don’t you think?
