Chintimini News and Happenings 


More Square Footage
Many thanks to the Autzen Foundation, for awarding us a grant to purchase a new steel shipping container that we have converted into a storage unit for the huge amount of animal food needed to feed the rehabilitation patients in our care.


Window Dangers
During every autumn migration, the Chintimini Wildlife Center admits numerous birds that have suffered injuries from colliding with windows. Click here to learn what you can do to minimize these human impacts.
Drunk and Disorderly
Every fall, fruit eating birds like the Cedar Waxwing ingest decomposing fruit and are admitted to CWC for being “drunk and disorderly.” They become inebriated from the fermented fruit and become disoriented enough that they crash into windows, become susceptible to predation from house cats, or are simply found on the ground unable to fly properly. For these latter birds, we just hold onto them until they sober up, then send them on their way again!


Happy EndingsWestern Wood-Pewee

Great Horned Owl

Mourning Dove
The above animals came into our rehabilitation clinic for a variety of reasons, but they were all released back into the wild this month after brief stays at the clinic. In the month of September, we were able to release over 65 rehabilitated wild animals back into the wild!
