Thank you very much for the kind compliment!

I can't believe you got tornados in MA! I have family from there and I've never heard of tornados there before. It is very thoughtful of you to get a wildlife rehabilitation license, I bet you'll have some wonderful experiences (or atleast happy endings). Please post photos of the little ones :)

I agree with you! I love your Photo's!
I am going to my wildlife rehabilitation license, we had a tornado not to far from where i live and a bunch of baby birds got tossed from there nest, in Cummington, MA, and there is not many people who are reabbers who can take them, poor things
