Rocking robins sing Burnaby residents into summer

It’s “wildlife Wednesday” and that means the Wildlife Rescue Association of B.C. has its latest submission.

“American Robins are the first signs of early spring and summer, you can hear their songs early morning, or into the evening if you pay close attention. We found this Robin in a window box in Maple Ridge and brought it to Wildlife Rescue hospital. After a thorough examination, our staff assessed fluid buildup in the knee.
