BIRD RESCUE CAMBRIDGE
At Huntington Stables Retreat, we strive to live more 'mindfully' & take our 'environmental responsibility' initiatives seriously. As part of this endeavour we have created Bird Rescue Cambridge: a safe-haven for garden-variety birds that require rest & recuperation, babies that need rearing & release, or the rehoming of surrendered domestic birds. All wild birds that are cared for here, are released back into the wild unless it's unsafe to do so. Spring & Summer are our busiest seasons with the influx of orphaned babies needing to be hand-reared. Many of our released birds have remained here on the property, enjoying the cat-free safety of our gardens & trees, while receiving continued supplement feeding. Long-term residents in the aviary includes an ever-growing flock of Zebra Finches, & 'Luna' - an extremely rare, pure white albino sparrow. We have been fortunate to receive a large variety of birds since starting up Bird Rescue Cambridge 3 years ago, which have included unusual migrating birds from the Pacific Island (having been blown off course), native birds (which are handed on to DOC approved carers), & lost birds like the stunning green Amazon Parrot in the photos above (later reunited with his owner).
