Rebecca Galligan, wildlife rehabilitation center specialist with The Conservancy of Southwest Florida's wildlife center, feeds a northern flicker, one of many young birds being cared for at the center, on Monday. The spring and summer is baby bird season and the center receives about 200 animals per month, which are mostly young birds. People should phone the center at (239) 262-2273 to report injured wildlife or if there is concern about a bird's nest, as it is illegal to cut down trees with nesting native birds. The Conservancy, which is constantly in need of volunteers, can be reached at (239) 262-0304 for volunteer information.
