Couple Waits to Help Injured Birds and Hatchlings That Come Each Spring

Spring is a beautiful season, right? It’s when the weather starts to warm up, it’s when the trees and flowers start to bloom, and it’s when the wildlife starts to wake up from hibernation and welcome new babies into the world. While spring is often met with celebrations and jubilation, spring can also mean injured birds and baby hatchlings. Instead of just leaving them to perish, one couple has vowed to save them.

The Couple In Question 

Liz and Chris Hatton are originally from the United Kingdom, but they now reside in Indiana, where they have lived and worked for the past 24 years. The couple set up their very own organization, For the Birds of Indiana, which hopes to educate people on the beauty and the majesty of birds – while also caring for any injured animals along the way. However, spring isn’t a great month for them.

Spring Has Sprung

While most people love this season, Liz and Chris find this time of year to be a struggle. One of the main reasons for this is because it’s what they call the “baby bird season.” This is when new hatchlings make their appearance, and this is where more birds can be found flying around. Although this is wonderful if they remain unharmed, this couple sees too many injured birds for their liking.

Taking Care Of Them

The couple has built up a reputation for themselves over the years, and they have made it their mission to take care of as many injured birds as possible. They pick them up from the side of roads, they have them dropped off by passers-by, and they are given the task of nursing them back to health. Although it’s tough, they wouldn’t have it any other way. 

Aren’t these two the greatest? Well done, Chris and Liz!
