    YOU'VE FOUND A BABY BIRD -  What should you do?
Almost all birds are protected by the International Migratory
Bird Treaty so taking care of baby birds should be left to
licensed Utah Wildlife Rehabilitators.  Many fledglings (especially
Robins) spend some time on the ground and are fed by their parents
so knowing what to do is essential for their survival. Here is
a handy guideline to follow.

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology also has an excellent
article
on this subject.

SPRING  RETREAT 

The Utah Audubon Council will meet April 12 and 13, 2014 in
St. George at the Tonaquint Nature Center for their Annual
Spring Retreat.  Birders from each Audubon Chapter in
Utah will be here.  Besides updates on the Chapters and what's
happening in Utah, there will be a trip to Lytle Ranch. 
You are invited to join with us.  For more information
about the Spring Retreat, call 435 673-0996.

Thanks
to all those who helped make the 2014 WBF a success!
