Initially just wanting to save one bird, she soon found 90 birds, some injured and others confused, and picked them up while wearing gloves.

There are folks out there that feel as if they need to be doing something useful/valuable during a crisis. She may be one of those people. It helps them cope to help others, stay busy and to 'have a mission'.
Truly an amazing thing that she did.
Hoping for the best recovery for all of the folks in the Caribbean.
Thanks for bringing this story to my attention.

Spends the next week cleaning up all the bird s***.

Look, I feed wild birds out back. But I don't otherwise interfere with what happens to them. They're wild.

Wildlife should remain wild.

Meddlesome do gooders are detrimental. The wildlife that dies from inclement weather are supposed to. The survivors found a hole in the wall to 'weather' the storm; they are smart, will pass that knowledge onto their offspring.

Im not taking about rescuing pets or livestock, either.

You feed, she housed. Not much difference. In fact, you feeding wild birds helps them become stronger and more capable to survive. You are in effect, helping to rescue them. An interesting link below about the effects of feeding wild birds.


We found that species that use bird feeders the most tended to be doing just as well as, or better than, species that use feeders more sporadically. For example, Red-bellied Woodpeckers visit feeders regularly and are thriving, whereas Pinyon Jays visit feeders more sporadically and are showing declines.

What and not a single case of bird flu?

Seems like a few years ago it was going to kill us all!

Wow, your cynicism holds no bars. I agree with a lot you post but not everything is doom and gloom bro.

Most people are awesome. Why is it so unusual for someone to do something good?

I apologise in advance, I'm a little tired and cranky from a long day at work.

i don't think i said it was unusual for someone to be good or do good.

it's unusual to hear it in the news or see a post in a forum about it, though.

When I say 'feeding' its enough for about five minutes of frenzy in the morning. Just sustaining them that little bit.

Making that day a little easier .

From my outdoors phase, I knew what was like to help others that little bit. Its doesn't rescue them or fix anything, just makes the day that little bit easier.

Instead of birds and squirrels, people should go find a shopping cart pusher or bridge denizen and give them a wool cap, gloves, mini flashlight or poncho. Watch them beam at you for that littlest nothing that helps immensely.
