Volunteers watched as Dr. Tim Tristan, Sealife's veterinarian, helped a young caracara that had mouth issues and then Amanda Terry, Director of Rehabilitation, showed the group how to feed the feisty bird of prey.
Everyone enjoyed seeing that the four baby woodpeckers from Rockport were thriving and eating--a lot. Right after the visit the babies moved to a small flight cage in preparation for fledging and eventual release. More volunteers are always needed by Wings Rescue Center to help raise babies and transport injured animals for care."- Jeanette Larson
