Wing Haven, located in the historic Myers Park neighborhood, is home to an array of small animals including rabbits and chipmunks. However, some of the most prominent residents are birds of North Carolina.
Birds, just like humans, need to eat a balanced diet to stay healthy. During the summer months, Finches, Cardinals, Wrens, Woodpeckers, Nuthatches, Titmice and Catbirds consume more than 5,000 worms per week.
To feed that need, Wing Haven recently raised $525 through power2give.org, allowing them to purchase mealworms for an entire year. They posted the project on the site and, through the help of generous bird lovers, reached their goal and are now able to keep their mealworm bowl full for their feathery friends.
