Why Did The Turtle Cross The Road?
Most people have seen a turtle crossing a road at one
time or another. Some species of animals, like turtles,
don’t always live and breed in the same place. This time
of year, turtles are wandering around looking for a place
to breed or to lay their eggs. Unfortunately, these creatures sometimes cross very busy roads in order to get to
where they want to lay their eggs.
2. If you see one in the road, and it is safe for you to
assist, kindly help it to the other side. Be sure and take it
in the direction it was going. Turtles seem to have a very
definitive purpose in their choice of direction. If you
bring them back to where they came from, chances are
they will turn around and head out across the road once
again!
The box turtle, with their high-domed, hinged shell is
probably the most commonly seen. Box turtles spend
most of their time on dry land, so when we see one on
a highway, we can assume it’s just walking to a better
location for breeding, feeding or living. Aquatic turtles
such as snappers or pond sliders that cross roads are
often looking for the same things, but may also be traveling from one body of water to another. Aquatic turtles
like to make nests further away from water in higher
and drier places. Terrestrial turtles that ordinarily live in
wooded areas like to make nests in open fields. So when
it’s time to lay their eggs… travel is in order!
3. Unless the turtle is obviously injured and in need of
medical care, please DO NOT relocate turtles to other
areas or take it home with you thinking it needs a home.
Most wildlife has very specific requirements to thrive
in captivity and will do much better when left in their
natural environment. If an injured turtle is found, the
Wildlife Sanctuary will be happy to provide any necessary treatment.
Concerned citizens are often inclined to “help.” Breathe
easy…turtles DO NOT wander aimlessly…they know
exactly where they are going and what they are doing!
What can you do to help?
1. Be alert and prepare yourself to avoid them in the
road. Slow down just a little, especially during their
nesting months in spring and summer.

Bald Eagle Chicks
Orphaned bald eaglets are being fostered by two nonreleasable adult eagles at the Wildlife Sanctuary of
Northwest Florida.
The amazing story of these eaglets began on St.
George Island when concerned neighbors Kevin &
Chantel Burdett, Lauren Levi and Kenny Piotrowski
rescued two fallen chicks after their nest tree came
down in a storm. Emergency care began with
Chris Beatty, Florida Wild Mammal Association in
Crawfordville after being transported by Apalachicola
National Estuarine Research staff members. One
eaglet sustained injuries from the fall while the
other remained uninjured. Plans were immediately
underway to rebuild a nest and return the uninjured
chick. The following day both eaglets were stable
enough to be transferred to the Wildlife Sanctuary in
Pensacola for continued care and treatment.
A team continued working to reunite the healthy eaglet
with its parents but first a replacement nest had to be
built, then find a secure tree nearby the original site for
the new nest and then get the nest and chick in place
in the top of the tree. Just how many people does it
take? Well, this time it was 3 state agencies, 2 wildlife
rehabilitators, 1 veterinarian, Duke Energy, the largest
electric utility in the country with their bucket truck,
several concerned citizens, 1 EagleWatch Program
professional , and 1 federal agency to attempt to
reunite this eaglet. “It wasn’t long before we had our
ducks (or eaglets) in a row for a coordinated effort
to try and reunite parents with chicks”, said Erik
Lovestrand, Director, UF/IFAS Franklin County
Extension. “Duke Energy is proud to have been part
of the effort to find these baby eagles a new home,”
said Daniel Collins, government and community
relations manager with Duke Energy.
The weather that had been the reason for the home
nest to fall continued to dictate the little eaglet’s
destiny. The reunion day turned out to be very cold
and rainy for everyone involved. Efforts to reunite the

eaglet were unsuccessful. Foster parents …yes that
was plan B…… the eaglets are both being raised by
experienced “eagle parents” to have the best chance
at a later release back to the wild. These adults are
permanently injured bald eagles and residents of the
Wildlife Sanctuary of NWFL. The injured eaglet is
currently recovering at WSNF from a fractured leg and
wing. Both eaglets are off display to the public due
to the need to keep them wild. Video cameras at the
Sanctuary allow viewing of the eagle family without
any disturbance.
“Though I know we are all very disappointed that the
parents did not return, we all pulled together to try
to help this young eaglet which was a very awesome
experience. We were so honored to be amongst such
a wonderful and caring group of people,” commented
Chris Beatty, Florida Wild Mammal Association.
How amazing that what seemed to be a day about
a single family of eagles…is actually an ongoing
lesson in caring, awareness, and community. (Special
Notes: Attending veterinarian Dr. Tommy Knight of
Westside Animal Hospital. The new eagle nest site
selection was determined between Erik Lovestrand
of UF/IFAS, Lauren Levi of ANERR, and Lynda
White of AEW, who also provided guidance for the
design of the replacement nesting platform. Supplies
for the platform were provided by Jenna Harper of
ANERR, and the platform was constructed by local
carpenter Kenny Piotrowski. The nesting platform
was secured in the new nest tree and Eaglet 1 placed
in the new nest by Duke Energy representatives. Eagle
neighbor Kevin Burdett also played an important
role in encouraging the adult eagles to remain in the
nesting area by playing taped audio calls/vocalizations
of their eaglets. Others attending the attempted eagle
reunion monitored the activity and remained in an
inconspicuous location awaiting the adult eagles
return.)

Volunteers & workers who care about all living
creatures
from Carol Murphy
I am standing upon the
seashore. A ship, at my side,
spreads her white sails to the
moving breeze and starts
for the blue ocean. She is an
object of beauty and strength.
I stand and watch her until,
at length, she hangs like
a speck of white cloud just
where the sea and sky come
to mingle with each other.
Then, someone at my side says,
“There, she is gone.” Gone
where?
Gone from my sight. That
is all. She is just as large in
mast, hull and spar as she was
when she left my side. And,
she is just as able to bear the
load of living freight to her
destined port. Her diminished
size is in me - not in her.
And, just at the moment when
someone says, “There, she is
gone,” there are other eyes
watching her coming, and
other voices ready to take
up the glad shout, “Here she
comes!”
And that is dying…
-Henry Van Dyke

The Sanctuary
by Frances Webb
When a baby woodpecker is knocked from its nest
by construction or weather or some other pest.
Or a barred owl is found with a wing that is broken
in the wee hours a volunteer may be awoken.
The Wildlife Sanctuary is a haven of peace,
where danger and cruelty to wildlife cease.
It’s a safelight in a nocturnal flight,
where the plight of wildlife comes into sight.
The need for donations of money, time and love,
to care for the wildlife on earth and above,
is provided in part by members and volunteers
making time in spite of their busy careers.
The work of the sanctuary deserves much attention
for more than just their wildlife intervention.
Prioritizing life’s preservation
restores the gift of humanization.
Thank you for joining
us and making our
Holiday Open House
such a great day!!
Cheryl Greene and Dorothy Kaufmann
honored to be a part of the conference room
at Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union downtown.
Our two eaglets were transferred to American Eagle Foundation in TN where they
were released to the wild at 15 weeks.

So, You’ve Found a Baby Bird…Now what?
It’s almost spring and eggs will be hatching! What do
you do when you come across what appears to be an
orphaned baby bird? You might want to pick it up and
bring it to your local wildlife rehabilitator or maybe
even care for it yourself until it’s big enough to fly
away (although not legal). However, think twice…
that baby might not be abandoned at all!
First it is important to determine whether the bird
is a nestling or a fledgling. A nestling will be pink,
featherless or “fuzzy” and will likely not yet have
opened its eyes, while a fledgling will have adult-like
feathers and may be attempting flight. This important
distinction will help you decide what to do next!
If the bird is a nestling, it has most likely fallen
out of its nest. If you can find the nest, you should
attempt to return the bird to it. If the nest has been
destroyed, you can actually make a new one. Try using
a plastic container with small drainage holes poked
through the bottom. Line it with soft nesting materials
(paper towels, tissues or a small cloth) and secure the
container into the tree close to where you found the
nestling. There is a very good chance the mother bird
will find it and continue to care for it. If none of this is
possible, then it would be wise to contact your closest
wildlife facility.
There is a common misconception that a mother bird
will not take back a baby that was handled by a human.
This is not true. It is important however, to handle
minimally and very gently if necessary.
If the bird is a fledgling, it is most likely just
fine! With a full set of feathers, fledglings become
independent very fast as they learn to fly and find food.
Their mothers are likely nearby and will return to
continue to teach and care for their fledgling. If it’s in
a relatively safe place (out of the way of cars and cats),
you should leave the bird as close to where you found
it as possible so she can find her baby. If you step way
back out of sight, you’ll probably get to see Mom
return. If Mom does not return or if the baby appears
injured, this would be a good time to contact your local
wildlife facility.
Please remember that it is illegal to keep wildlife.
Allow the professionals to care for these precious
little souls.
BALD EAGLE FUN FACTS:
• Bald eagles are the fastest growing bird in North America!
• Within 3 months eaglets will be bigger than its parents, with a wingspan of 6 ½ - 8 feet and having molted in
over 7, 000 feathers!
• A bald eagle egg generally weighs less than ¼ pound. When ready to fly, this eaglet will weigh between 7-12
pounds.
• Baby eaglets have 3 different plumages before they can fly…the white natal down, which is then replaced by a
secondary wooly down, then an overall dark colored body feathers emerge.
• The only time in an eaglets life that ALL its feathers will be growing at the same time is when it is just a few
weeks old, so they eat an enormous amount of food to provide all that energy for growing feathers.
• Young bald eagles are uniformly brown and lack the characteristic white head and tail of our national symbol.
Their eye color and beak are also dark and will change to yellow by the time they are five years old.
• Eagles learn to fly when they are 3-4 months old, and leave the nest to wander out on their own shortly
thereafter.
• Florida boasts one of America’s largest populations of bald eagles, with over 1500 documented pairs statewide.
Nesting season generally extends from October through May.
• It averages over $30 a day to feed the eagle family. Favorite food items include fish, rats, quail and other items.
