Deb fell in love with wild birds in 2004 by finding a baby bird on a sidewalk in Wilmington, DE. She brought the bird to a rescue organization and saw a room full of babies. She joined that rescue, learned how to work with baby and adult birds, raptors, re-nesting baby raptors, oil spill work, and finally began learning how to give them medical attention. She has raised a couple of babies on her own, was interviewed by the Stillwater News Press in OK on the Transcanada Pipeline, and photographs birds almost daily near her home in OK She is oil spill certified in ME and DE. Deb is a columnist for both the Stillwater News Press and The Oklahoman of Oklahoma City, OK, writing Life at Boomer Lake every week for your up-to-date enjoyment of birds.
