    It is a program where you can sign up to take care of baby birds that are abandoned then you release them into the wild.I think its going to be fun

    I think that sounds awesome too!
    Oh, does tlc stand for Tender loving care? That makes sense. Is this program only in the States?

    bird treatment and learning center.I think it may only be in alaska but maybe other states may have a similiar program.No for most of the birds they give you this mixture you have to feed them every 20 minutes for 12 hours a day

    Oh, so it wasn't tender loving care [​IMG] Close enough!

    20 minutes a day?! Wow, that's a lot of work. Are you going to take it out with you? [​IMG] It'd be too small to eat by itself out of a dish, wouldn't it....
