Baby crow

What's happening to our wildlife!

I was doubly disturbed today when I found the second, sick baby crow in two days, taking my dogs for a stroll today at Deepwood Estates.
Both were emaciated and weak, and the one I found at Pringle Creek pond the day before had a severe eye infection.
The Salem police directed me to the Turtle Ridge Wildife Rehabilitation Center, http://www.turtleridgewildlife.org
for the birds to receive care before being returned to the wild.
They said I'd done the right thing, but I was surprised at how many crows they ended up collecting in a season.
They explained that as our population grows, all wildlife has a harder time adapting and coping. So sad!
