Map & Details>>

From the outside, Jody Kieran's makeshift bird hospital seems like any ol' brown tract structure in the desert. But step inside the nondescript West Valley home and prepare yourself for a wacky, surrealistic experience. The not-for-profit haven for injured and orphaned fowl grants medical attention to just about any type of bird species, including raptors, hummingbirds, baby chicks, owls, parrots, and many more. Cages out front, in the backyard, the kitchen, and in a spare bedroom, each housing a chirping a bird on the road to recovery, dominate the space. Before you make the trek to the west side, get schooled in emergency DIY bird care on FF's "Found a Bird?" page on their Web site.

There's no fee for animal care, but donations are appreciated and graciously accepted. And don't be afraid if Kieran's eccentric mom greets you, even when she's dolled up in her cute and colorful curlers.

Hello! I can't tell you how excited all of us at Fallen Feathers are by being chosen for Best Of 2007! We hope it will bring more volunteers and donations our way, we can always use them! Who knows, maybe we can get a few patrons and/or sponsors?

In addition to giving you our heart-felt thanks, I have a question. I have seen plaques in restaurants commemorating a "Best Of" win, and I was wondering if those are still available, and for any of the winners? We would really like to have a couple for use at the "surreal makeshift bird hospital" and to take with us on presentations and shows. How would we go about getting them?

And thanks again, so much, for choosing us! We know that whomever wrote the piece was definitely at the house, because no one could make that stuff up and be so accurate! We all got a real 'HOOT' out of it!

Thanks!Delphia JaniszeskiAssistant DirectorFallen Feathers
