802.359.5000 | WILD BIRD REHAB: x510
Following a particularly graphic chapter, I was content to receive occasional photos updates and imagine the adventures my arctic siblings were getting into. They became the subjects of many early stories and likely a subconscious part of my future career choice.
1. Raptors aren’t the only option. Our songbirds, vultures and ravens need specialized care too. Our cardinal lives at VINS in the songbird aviary. We always feed our birds as close to their natural diet as possible. For this cardinal that means a variety of seeds and fruits.
5. That doesn’t mean you can’t come visit them. Unlike my polar bears, the VINS birds can always be found right here at the Nature Center and an adopt package includes passes to come back and visit the birds. Return in different seasons and year after year to track your bird’s development, changes in plumage or behavior and watch your gift in action.
Note: The VINS Adopt-a-Raptor program is tax deductible.
VINS adopts really are a great holiday gift. Thank you Jordan for highlighting all of the ways this special program benefits both the adopters as well as the adoptees. Last year I adopted the Barn Owl for a niece and the Snowy Owl for a nephew and paired them with a stuffy of the same species. It was a great Christmas gift. They can't wait to visit their birds when they next come to Vermont. Even though they live in Florida, they were still able to form that connection to the birds I get to see everyday here at VINS.
