Our Biggest Supporter

Bob 1.jpg

It is impossible to express the thanks & appreciation for all Bob Allwein has done and continues to do for the birds and the sanctuary.


He is the brains, the brawn & yes the bank that keeps us going.  The Bird room, Shower room, Kitchen, Pantry & Toy making room were concrete and a few studs.  The aviary & flight were open space. The wonderful bird room, aviary & flight the birds enjoy are the result of hard work by Bob.

Here are some of his projects...

Thor (tortoise) out grew his shelter. Bob built him a new enclosure. Insulated, with an airlock and thermostatically controlled radiant heat.

Next project, replacing wood steps with stone.

The Brains, the brawn & the bank behind our sanctuary. Bob does it all.

The Breezeway/small bird flight is being built. Bob has cut the "door" on the aviary side and has started welding the frame. This will connect the aviary to the flight. The birds will be contained at all times.

Other picture of the flight after 2 days of hard rain. We are pleased that none of the top soil or fill dirt washed out. Ah-man...more rain.

What is Bob up to? Answer- building another flight for the small birds. 7x10, lucky birds.
