Bird Rescue Coffeehouse
On Friday, November 18th at 7:30pm a coffeehouse will take place at Ambler Church of the Brethren. Miriam Moyer, a licensed wildlife rehabilitator who cares for about 400 birds annually in Montgomery County, will speak and present a slide show about her work to save wild birds in our area. She started as a volunteer, helping songbirds, swifts, swallows, woodpeckers and mourning doves on the way to recovery back in 1988. Her clinic, White Flicker, opened in 2005 and it now includes a website, www.whiteflicker.org.
She plans to bring two education birds with her – Little Bit, an orchard oriole, and Chipper, a northern cardinal.
