Great article. Re: the comments herein about fledgling birds... If you care about baby birds, please don't "rescue" them, please keep your house cats indoors. House cats are introduced to the environment by humans. They are efficient predators of song birds which they hunt for pleasure and torment as they "play" with them. They are devastating to song bird populations. See Audubon Society article here. Web Link

In the article the writer suggests Palo Alto Animal Services, 3281 E. Bayshore Rd. as a local agency. Just to clarify: PAAS has not managed the Palo Alto shelter for the past 4 years. The shelter still exists at that address, but it is managed by Pets In Need, a private nonprofit.

The phone number 650-329-2413 is the after-hours number for contacting the Palo Alto Animal Control Officers, employed by the Palo Alto Police Department. The ACOs pick up strays and helpless wild animals and deliver them to the agencies that rescue them.

Thank you for this piece and the wonderful photos. And thank you so much to those who rescue and help these animals. Can only imagine how rewarding it is when the various critters recover and are released back into nature.

By the way, years ago I'd taken injured birds to a wildlife place on Middlefield Road. Sad that is presumably no longer in operation. Pets and wildlife should be a high priority in city budgets, but that's another topic!
