These young flickers were rescued by APS crews from a burned pole during the Slide Fire in Oak Creek Canyon. A little over a month later they had been nurtured by Liberty Wildlife and were ready to be released. With the help of Eric Moore from Jay’s Bird Barn a location was chosen in Watson Woods, and the birds released. All five quickly flew into the trees and made themselves at home in their new location.
