Excuse Our Mess

Rescuers, rescue supporters, and volunteers do not walk on water.

We don't wear capes and tights or leap tall buildings.

We aren't better than anyone else, but we do pursue a cause that we believe
makes us better than we were before we started.

We make mistakes, we feel we can't do enough, we go broke,
we have too many birds at home, we rant out of frustration,
we lose our tempers and get snappy,
we have to reject people for the good of the bird.

We are not always likeable.

What we do is draining emotionally, financially, and physically.

Please bear with us and forgive us our flaws,
because we are doing work that is bigger than we are.
