The Marathon Wild Bird Center (MWBC) has been saving and rescuing sick, injured, and orphaned wild birds in the Middle Keys since 1995. When Kelly Grinter, founder and director of the MWBC first began tending to these needy birds she did it from the back of her car. Today, more than 22,000 feathered patients later, Kelly, her one employee and a team of loyal volunteers, assist more than 750 birds each year.
