Audubon's Melanie Furr Rescues Woodpecker!

Melanie Furr, the Audubon Education Director, was out at Emma a few weeks ago with Adam, the Audubon Conservation Director.  They discovered a baby Downy Woodpecker who had fallen out of her nest. The nest was very high up in a willow tree on a dead limb.  After trying 2 different tree services for help, Melanie decided to care for it herself.  After almost 3 weeks of mealy worm feedings every 30 minutes, the bird will soon be ready to be released into the wild.  None of this would have been possible without such kind, caring individuals like Melanie and others.  Thank you Melanie!
