Wildbird Recovery Donation

I  painted these birds as demos for some classes and decided to donate them as a part of "Art for Animals"  to the Wildbird Recovery Center.  I did a project last year for the Butler County Humane Society and this year I chose the Wildbird Recovery, Songbird Rehabilitation Center in Valencia, PA.
Last spring I found a little robin that was neglected by it's parents... not being fed... I watched the others being fed... so I called the recovery center and they said to bring it in. While I was there another woman brought in a crow that was hit by a car. I never really thought there was such a place for birds... funded by donations... and getting the birds rehabbed and back out.
They were happy to recieve the paintings and I hope will sell through their giftshop to get needed supplies.

Nice paintings, Maria. That center will be glad for these... I never knew anything like this existed, either.
