One of Rochester's gems is the Wild Wings sanctuary in Mendon - and it relies on the public's support.  On Sunday, we caught up with a tour guide as he entertained children who were there for a birthday party.  The guide showed the kids the birds of prey that live at Wild Wings, from owls to bald eagles and a red-tailed hawk.  The birds have either been injured in the wild or by humans.  They depend on Wild Wings for their survival.  Wild Wings is one of few such sanctuaries open to the public.  Wild Wings offers tours, hiking trails, and other outdoor events.  Volunteers also bring some of the birds into local schools.  It's a non-profit group that relies on donations to cover the cost of animal food, veterinary visits, and educational programs.  If you'd like to learn more about Wild Wings, click here.
