On a sad note we regret to notify all of our friends at M.B.S that Marsha and Jim Pearson's Wild Bird Center has closed for good on new Years Eve, 2009. They will be greatly missed by every one connected with the sanctuary, especially the birds since thru their love and generosity of a bird seed grant, that has lasted for 9 years, our feeders have been full.
We would love to have some one step up and continue that service. Like most non-profits we have been financially hurt by the recessions and we, the neighbors and the "Friends of M.B.S" would be forever grateful for such a miracle.
Because of the inactivity during the winter months, "Jessica's Point of View" column will be every other month. In its place this month, Jessica has printed a response to her December column that she received from Jack Hammeke, a 6th grade student at Meadowbrook School, Hampton Rd. in Meadowbrook.
"One of the things I like best about M.B.S is that it is not only a place where birds live; it is also a place where my school, The Meadowbrook School, has an event. The event is called Sugar and Spice Day. At the Sanctuary we have sugar cookies and apple cider and listen to the birds chirping. Sometimes people just sit there and admire all the bids that are flying around and are chirping their pleasant chirp. Unless it's a crow - that is not a pleasant sound to hear. When people are there they can count the birds that are flying around. One time my Mom and I came over to the sanctuary and we had bird seed that we put in the shed so the birds would have food. Meadowbrook Bird Sanctuary is a Sanctuary."

Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget, come again.
From all of us at M.B.S
