The Sierra Wildlife Rescue organization will be training those who would like to care for orphaned baby birds.
The SWR wildlife center takes in 500 orphaned or injured baby birds each year, everything from turkeys to sparrows. The group cares for them until they are fledged and then release the birds into the wild.
A class to teach the care and feeding of nestlings will be held from 10 a.m. to noon April 7. Another class is scheduled for April 17 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Both classes are at the center, 3030 Newtown Road in Placerville.
Once trained, 2-4 hour baby bird care shifts are available at the center. Call Barbara Barker at 530-621-2650 to register for the classes.
