Feed our ducklings!

per month

Ducklings are some of the cutest floofs we get! 

Duckling starter is $5/bag, greens and mealworms are also provided for a balanced diet.

We triage, medicate, stabilize, and feed duckling intakes until they can be transferred to our duck rehabber.

Bird food!

per month

Let's just say that we go through a lot of seed. Our most voracious seed eaters are House Finches, Northern Cardinals, Mourning Doves, Blue Jays, Brown-headed Cowbirds, and Common Grackles.

Bluebirds, Swallows, and Swifts!

per month

Aerial insectivores go through massive quantities of mealworms, help us feed them!

In order to ensure that everyone has their needs met, we order large quantities mealworms (90,000/wk), crickets (500), waxworms (250), beetles (250), and fly larvae (250).
