From The Director’s Chair

Nancy, the Director of East Valley Wildlife, was the ‘inventor’ of the Panic Button for our website. At least it was her idea and then the technical team took over to bring the concept to fruition.  So far it has been working really well.  Nancy even has the idea to ask a caller to take a photo of the rescued bird with their camera telephone (if available.)  Then, through the magic of computer networking, Nancy is able to (probably) identify the type of bird.  But, alas, the strategy is not fool-proof…as Nancy found out.  She received a telephone call  recently from a lady who was certain that she had rescued a thrasher.  The bird turned out to be a grackle.
