First volunteer experience!

Today was David and I’s first day volunteering at a bird sanctuary called Wing and a Prayer. The day was spent cleaning cages, filling food and water bowls, and handling the birds in and out of cages. We got a tour of the sanctuary, got to know the staff, and got familiar with the birds! Some of them have such personalities! The starlings were particularly friendly and would sit on our shoulders! Most of the birds there were pigeons, doves and rooks, but there were also some cool birds too, like the long eared owl in the picture below, a pheasant, snowy owl and lots more! The whole experience was so much fun, and I can’t wait to go back next weekend! This will be great to put as experience on my CV too!
