Enjoy "Avian Rehabilitation – or How to Live With a Loon in Your Bathtub" at Monmouth Audubon meeting December 13


Justin Smisko about to release a rehabilitated red-tailed hawk at Avian Wildlife Center.

Wildlife Rehabilitator Giselle Chazotte Smisko will present "Avian Rehabilitation – or How to Live With a Loon in Your Bathtub " at the December meeting of the Monmouth County Audubon Society, Wednesday, December 13, at 8:00 pm. the public is welcome; admission is free.

A fuzzy ball of a bird has just fallen 30 feet from its nest and now sits in your hands. What do you do? Many people have faced this dilemma and found themselves feeling more helpless than the bird. Giselle Chazotte Smisko's presentation will discuss that situation and many others that confront wildlife rehabilatators. Practical information will be offered on how people can prevent many of the problems that threaten our wildlife.

Giselle SmiskoThe presenter, Giselle Chazotte Smisko, is a naturalist, photographer, wildlife rehabilitator, and master bird bander. Over more than three decades she has worked as an educator for the Morris County Park Commission, Union County Department of Parks and Recreation, The Raptor Trust, and the Wallkill River National Wildlife Refuge. Her knowledge of birds comes from years of rehabilitating several thousand injured and young birds and conducting research of wild populations in cooperation with New Jersey’s Nongame and Endangered Species Program, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. She founded the Avian Wildlife Center in Sussex County with her husband, John Smisko, in 1990. The Center admits roughly 500 birds annually for rehabilitation and handles several thousand phone calls about wildlife. Education is a key component of the Center's mission with numerous programs presented and literature available on a range of topics. They have initiated a conservation project on Chimney Swifts in New Jersey and work to expand knowledge of native species through field research.
