This is Booger.
"Not a great name, obviously, but he came to us with a pretty bad sinus infection," said animal care operations manager Jenna McFarland.
River and Brook were literally born in a stream in Bragg Creek.
"So their mom delivered them right into the water and they washed downstream," said McFarland.
This raven is about two months old.
The facility is currently housing 770 wild animals.
"We have over 200 patients more at this time this year as we did this time last year," said Andrea Hunt, executive director of the Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society.
The facility trains volunteers to care for the animals, but says what it really needs right now are cash donations.
