Meet the Best Friends of Wildlife
Story and photos by JoAnne Green
Posted on October 09, 2009

Barrel Owl, Fresno, CASeasoned and novice antique collectors as well as frequent fairgoers attending the annual Antique and Collectible Fair in Old Town Clovis expect to see many old and unique items displayed on both sides of the streets. But at 2009 fair on Sunday, October 11th, they saw something they did not expect to see at the event: several magnificent owls, hawks, and other wild birds.

A beautiful Barred Owl, securely perched on the arm of a lady in front of the Fresno Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center booth caught the  eye of many fairgoers. Some other owls and hawks also perched on several iron rods that were set on the street. Practically everyone there came very close to these wild birds to admire their beauty. Someone in the crowd wondered aloud how the owls and hawks were captured. Someone else inquired about the name and origin of these wild birds. Volunteers from the Center cheerfully answered every question.

Story continued below.

The purpose of Fresno Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center having a booth at the annual Antique and Collectible Fair in Old Town Clovis was to bring awareness to people of all ages about the many injured or abandoned wild birds and other animals of many species that the wildlife volunteers have taken care of. The volunteer rehabbers also shared some fascinating backgrounds of the rescued owls and hawks. They also explained to the spectators what to do if they ever come across an injured bird or other animal.

It seemed that the wild birds at this Antique Fair were accustomed to being admired at a close-up range by people. Some of them were just a perfect model for publicity photo ops at this event.

The folks at the Fresno Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center did a fantastic job to educate the public at the Antique and Collectible Fair about their mission to rescue and treat injured or abused wild animals and to release the rehabilitated animals back to their natural habitat.

What a pleasant surprise and exciting experience it was to see Barred Owls, a Saw-whet Owl, Harris' Hawks, a Red-tailed Hawk and several other fascinating birds up close in the middle of the morning in the heart of a thriving city!
