People Who Save Birds are My Hero

Female Falconer Has an Amazing Gift to Nurture Nature

Birds are beautiful, enchanting creatures and the people who save them are my heroes.

And when I come across an amazing person that gives injured, orphaned, displaced or distressed birds a second chance at life, intoBirds’ way to honor them for their work is to share their story with the world.

We were fortunate to come across just this person.

My Hero

Christine Peyreigne is a young female falconer and also a wildlife rehabilitator.

And she’s my hero.

And she has an amazing gift to nurture nature.

She uses her own money to operate Christine’s Critters Inc. a Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education non-profit in West, Connecticut.

And cares for 21 beautiful resident birds of prey, including my absolute favorite, owls.

As well as 30 reptiles, 2 amphibians, a tarantula and more than 200 birds of prey that receive care and are released back into the wild.

Barred Owl Gets A Second Chance

I was thrilled to see Christine cared for a male Barred Owl that flew into a window just two days earlier and was returned home so that he could reunite with his mate.

It’s breeding season for owls in Connecticut, and the best part of what Christine and wildlife rehabilitators do is helping birds get a second chance at life in the wild.

I don’t want to give too much away as we have a terrific feature about Christine you have to read.
