Bird Care at MSU’s Kellogg Bird Sanctuary
Bird Care Doesn’t Stop During a Pandemic
As the nation wades through an unprecedented ocean of daily COVID-19 news and social distancing guidelines, animal keepers around the country continue caring for their animals and the staff at the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is no exception. Our animal care staff is on site every day to make sure the birds have what they need, whether during a severe snowstorm or a global pandemic.
With events, programs and our popular field trips canceled, the Sanctuary anticipates a loss of $40,000 of income. This is the income that purchases food, supplies and medication to care for our birds. Each month, it costs $300 to feed just the birds of prey.
