This peacock was brought in from the cantonment area after it came and hid inside the Colonel's house. The bird used to come and feed in their garden for a few years now, developing a bond with them. It trusted them enough to hide in their house and turned out to have a broken leg. The bird was given treatment, physiotherapy and care for more than two months and after a complete recovery it was released back at their house itself. The bird immediately flew up to their balcony which was his favorite roost. . 
The family was very happy to see their peacock back at his usual place, the bird too seemed to be thrilled. We were so glad we could release our national bird back to the urban wild and that too at a place where it is loved and cared for.

This month we had a surprise visitor in our facility.
Mr. Harald Baldr, a traveller and You Tuber from Norway, visited Jivdaya Charitable Trust after hearing about it. He visited our facility and created a video of the medical treatment and rehabilitation work done by us for stray Animals and Birds. He appreciated the overall working of the Trust and has uploaded the video on You Tube. The links of the You Tube video which is in two parts by the name “Animal Shelter India: Victims of Kites and Pet Trade” and “Animal Shelter India 2: Street Dog Rescue” are copied below.
The Trust has a full-fledged facility for treating the injured birds and animals which includes (apart from the regular vets) Operation Theatre, X-Ray, Pathology, Incubators, Egg Hatchers, etc. The Trust basically rescues the stray birds and animals and caters to the care and treatment of them. Once these birds and animals are fit, they are released to its natural habitat. The trust also welcomes requests for adoption of these animals.
The trust is a privately funded one and depends on donations from animal and bird lovers. The Trust receives donations from all over the globe, details of which are available on the website of the trust - https://www.jivdayatrust.org and in the You Tube details created by Mr. Harald.

Pelican prepared for surgery
Pelican prepared for surgery

A Great White Pelican was found injured in Chotila which was rescued by Forest Department, Chotila, Gujarat. We sent our team of rescuers to get the bird at our facility for further treatment and care. The bird was brought on 16 January 2019.  On examination, it was found that the bird had lacerated wound on its right shoulder joint exposing humorous bone which was caused due to Manja (the sharp glass coated thread use to fly kites). It was an extensive injury. The bird was in painful condition also unable to eat. The prognosis was poor. 

An emergency was performed by our team of expert Vets . The surgery took 2 hours to suture up the wound. Eventually the bird recovered well after the surgery. The bird was kept in enclosure, to restrict the long flights. 

Round the clock care, timely feeding, regularly dressing, antibiotics and pain killers helps the bird recovered well. Physiotherapy was regularly given to the wing manually. The bird is showing good signs of recovery.   

The bird will now be kept in the aviary for flying practice. After proper curatorial check up, the bird will be released in its natural habitat.

BABY OWLET HEALTHY AND FIT
BABY OWLET HEALTHY AND FIT

HAND RAISED SPOTTED OWLETS:

These two baby owlets were rescued after they fell from their nest and were brought to us.

They were very small 10-12 days old and the younger one was severely dehydrated and weak.

Our Curator Sherwin Everett took them under his wing, as they needed constant care, feeding and supervision.

Once the babies had recovered from their starvation and weakness, they were set on a fixed regime to start self feeding and rely less on the human interaction.

This time period is very crucial in most baby birds' lives because they can get very easily imprinted (recognizing the human as parent) and that is not a good thing for birds that have to go back to the wild. 

De-imprinting takes a lot of time, energy and resources, which is why it is always best to make sure that the babies are not given that time to imprint completely onto you. 

After 15 days these guys were feeding on their own.

After a month they started their flight practice and were shifted back to JCT's other shelter to stretch their wings and learn to fly.

One month later both the babies had grown up into decent looking owlets from those adorable fluffy and fragile babies.

Loads of flight practice and after learning to hide from predators, they even started screaming and running away from our staff. (An amazing sign of a wild bird!!!).

Only once we found that they could manage on their own completely were they were finally released back to their natural habitat.

An amazing and efficient staff made the lives of these homeless , motherless and speechless babies safe and happy.

Dear Donors! We need your helping hand on our shoulders always to keep us driven to complete all our welfare work successful.

RESCUING,RELOCATING AND REHABILITATING MOTHER COMB DUCK AND HER BABIES:

 A couple of months ago, this female comb duck was roaming around a bungalow's backyard with her 18 ducklings in the middle of the city.

Our team rescued her along with her babies, normally the mother flies off, watching her babies from far and doesn't approach them quickly, but we managed to capture her safely as well. 

After a thorough check-up and supervision for 3 days she and her babies were relocated to a much more isolated and wild area. 
Mother was really happy with new relocation and was checking continuosly to see whether her kids would be comfortable in their new home or not.

We too got very much attached with the entire duck family and loved watching them moving and eating.

Our Curator set up the enclosure as per the comfort of the entire family accordingly and gave them a lot of places to hide and let them  feel more secure.

The more comfortable a bird is in captivity, the less stress it has to incur and that lowers the pressure on the immune system of the bird. 


Mother comb duck and her ducklings were  released after few days stay in our cosy enclosure, once we observed that they were strong enough to live on their own.

Its a wonder to look at the wild animals and their behaviours and way of leading life.

We all feel really fortunate to be a part of hundred and thousand of ownerless animals' journey in this world.

Please keep up with your noble work of donating us generously so that we can too spread our wings and take proper care of all the animals that are stray and speechless.

Comb duck babies feel so secured and relaxed
