CeeCee Update

I received an email from the Ohio Wildlife Center where CeeCee was taken after I had to surrender her to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.  I can’t express how grateful I am that they were thoughtful enough to send me an update about her.   Hi Alexandria,   I just wanted to let you know that the sparrow is healthy, and is currently in an aviary with other birds.  Our first priority is to attempt to decrease the human seeking behaviors to see if it will assimilate with other birds of its’ species.  If we are unsuccessful, we will most likely be seeking placement options.  I understand your attachment to the bird since you were instrumental in its survival, and we will ultimately make the best decision for her.  We do not, however, provide regular updates on our patients … Continue reading →
