Bird sanctuary

While at Zaagkuilsdrift last weekend, we visited the bird sanctuary on the property. 
The birds in the cages have either been injured (hit by cars or have flown into power lines), or have been habituated from being around humans in captivity so they can't live independently in the wild, or they are second-egg babies - when the second egg in a nest is removed to prevent the parents from killing the second hatchling, or they are unwanted pets. 


The sanctuary is under the care of the KZN Wildlife Society, but is privately funded.  They are doing excellent work at the sanctuary to protect and care for wild birds.
