WildCare lost power Thursday afternoon and evening. All the animals were fed and watered before we went black. The only problem was the heat and one incubator for the 2 infant squirrels and 2 great horned owl eggs. So what did we do? We put hand warmers in one nest and snuggled them all together. It will be the only time WildCare will ever put squirrels and owls together! It was a safe bet, infant squirrels with owl eggs. They made it through the night fine. The trees at WildCare were another story.
The willow almost missed the nursery when it fell but it took down the back fence. The maple in the front landed on the picnic table and a bird feeder right after I filled it with seed. The netting on all the flights is solid with ice and now it is trying to hold up the snow. We can only hope it will hold. If anyone wants to help with branch removal please call us at WildCare 872-9338.
