Le Nichoir conserves wild birds by offering compassionate care and public education
Once a year we invite you to show your support for the work we do at Le Nichoir by participating in our Annual Campaign. Your generosity enables our team of wildlife biologists, students and volunteers to deliver on our mission of conserving wild birds.
Le Nichoir fulfills this mission by offering two programs: professional and compassionate care of injured and orphaned wild birds; and the development and delivery of public environmental education.
A Great Blue Heron arrived at Le Nichoir with its feet covered in tar. The tar was removed following a cleaning protocol for oiled birds. After a period of recuperation which also gave the bird time to regain some weight, the heron was released.
A juvenile Yellow-bellied Sapsucker was admitted with multiple abrasions and missing feathers following an attack by a dog. The wounds were cared for and the bird was released after an eight-week recovery period.
