Those words were written in an e mail I received this week from Bill Thompson, The Bird Man of Cobourg, who became a household name this past winter for his fight and determination to feed and assist the swans, geese and ducks denied their food source due to a frozen over Cobourg harbour. His latest act of rescue was to capture a Canada goose in Bewdley that had been shot with an arrow (I won't even touch that, for the anger it generates inside me) and then transport it to the Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre in Napanee where is was tended to Skechers Relaxed Fit and nursed back to full health.

being what it is, word (or tweets) spread, possibly started by an observant chickadee. Within moments three grackles appeared, dive bombing the hawk which, shrugging them off, launched itself toward the south east where two crows took over the chase.
It's a remarkable place, run by dedicated volunteers a place that didn't hesitate to make the trip to Cobourg to help the birds of our harbour.

Sandy Pines is a remarkable place admitting more than 2,000 various species each year. This past, harsh winter, with 90% of the Great lakes frozen over, placed a huge strain on the Centre's facilities, admitting 24 mute swans ones who survived, the Ontario eastern shores littered with birds that starved to death. Now 20 years old, the Centre has constantly expanded. By this time next year it will have a new hospital with an operating room, anesthetic machine and X ray unit.
My wife and I first heard of Sandy Pines a few years ago when a car pulled into our driveway and Sue Meech, the founder and director of the Wildlife Centre introduced herself, asking if she could use our back garden to release a red tail hawk. We learned that, earlier, our next door neighbour, Don Meeson, had rescued the hawk which had landed, injured, in his garden. He took it to the Northumberland Humane Society. From there volunteers took it to Napanee. The Centre releases wildlife close to where it was found. On this day there was no one home at the Meeson's and our garden was the closest point for release.
What a winter it was for Thompson, the Town of Cobourg issuing him ticket after ticket for violating a bylaw forbidding the feeding of wild birds around the harbour. With stories and photographs by Pete Fisher appearing in this paper, Thompson's dedication, and defiance went, to use an Internet clich viral. For a nation reluctant to be stirred into action about anything that might rouse anger, the plight of the birds of Cobourg harbour struck a nerve. From far and wide Peterborough, Oshawa / Pickering, Baltimore, Newcastle and Napanee's Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre, people descended on Cobourg, bringing bags of corn and offers to help pay for any fines Thompson might receive.

"I'll never forget this dire but heartwarming experience," Bill Thompson told me. "The trust and bond I received surrounded by swans, ducks, geese, pigeons, not to mention the former strangers who came forth in support. It restored my faith somewhat in mankind."
