Birds Rehab at Tamarack(15/07/08)
After the chemistry tests above the dam in Woodcock Creek, we went to a little bird rehabilitation house. First we met Carol Holmgren, the director of a program that has the purpose of healing and rehabilitating birds. She showed us some interested birds such as an owl, a falcon and a bold eagle... All these birds were injured before they came to this refuge. In here they get medical attention, food and all the cares they could need. After watching the birds she took us to a cabin, she had a little project for us: fixing the place. Some of us used a wheel barrow to take sand into some holes, others used the shovels to spread dirt on the floor while others put soil into some holes and finally some were cleaning the place. This was our visit to the Tamarack rehabilitation house. It was a nice activity in wich we all worked hard and help in this im portant project for our environment.
