Patient Updates

Every day new patients arrive at our facility. In an effort to tell their story of survival and highlight the diverse number of species that we rehabilitate, we highlight a new patient each week. Some of these are individuals, others are orphaned siblings. As their cases progress - we will update the outcome - our hope is that many, many of these patients are released!

Vaux's Swifts

By Sarvey Wildlife / Monday, July 31, 2017 /

These orphaned swifts were found in Lake Stevens, Marysville, and Granite Falls. Only two were originally siblings, the other three came in separately and now they are a group of five.

They cling to the sides of the enclosure hanging around like gargoyles or bat birds. They are also VERY noisy at times. 

Vaux's swifts spend their time in the air foraging for insects. They don't land to eat or drink and spend the whole day flying.

Status - Sadly, 3 passed away from complications with an infection, and one had to be euthanized. One was released.
