Greetings fellow wildlife lovers!

We hope you're doing well, staying safe and staying home where possible.
We here at CWRC (animals included!) are doing what everyone else
seems to be doing lately - cleaning and...eating!
Yes, it's spring cleaning time here at the centre and that means
scrubbing a year's worth of eagle poop off the flyway walls!
Then check out our pictures of animals eating
(bonus - porc plays the Blues...).

On to a short graphic novel eagle story and then
exciting news on the cute merch front!

Read on!
Spring Cleaning

After releasing our 4 very active juvenile eagles earlier this month things are a little quieter in the Big Jeezley (eagle flyway) and so begins the annual spring cleaning! 

Above are 3 pics from a previous year and one from this month - pretty easy clue to help identify the current pic!
Usually we work in teams- hosing down sections, scrubbing them clean, rinsing them off and repeat - up the ladder, down the ladder all around the circular flyway!

This year... we're practicing social distancing and only have 1 person per shift. Not quite as much 'fun'! (seriously - cleaning poop off walls with a team can be fun...and dirty...and sweaty...)
Although, I had the good fortune to have a very special supervisor watch over me last week - see pic one!


You might be sick of seeing your social media flooded with #QuarantineKitchens so we thought pictures of our animals eating might be a welcome change!

We feed such a wide variety of foods at the centre from corn and berries and Cheerios to fish and mice and chicken! We need to keep a range of food on hand as we never know what our next intake will be and what dietary needs they will have. If you'd like to make a donation to help us stock up on food for the baby season just click here. 

We shouldn't have favourites, but we had an adult porcupine with us for a long time and he LOVED his corn on the cob and we LOVED to watch him sit back on his haunches and eat it, typewriter style!

In fact, it reminded us of something else- so our Co-Founder and graphic designer extraordinaire Murdo worked a little magic to transform 

Corn Porc into Blues Porc...
Watch the magic by clicking here - the big reveal is around 29 seconds. 


Eagle Info!

  • one of the lead poisoned Juvenile eagles from from A Tale of Five Eagles  was released on April 4th during our 4 eagle release! A very happy ending to his story. 
  • After releasing the 4 eagles on April 4th we let 2 adult eagles into the flyway to carry on their rehabilitation with muscle and flight conditioning and...You can watch them on the live webcam here!
