DENVER (AP) - A Denver-area rehabilitation center for injured songbirds and waterfowl is struggling to raise more than $490,000 to build a new facility.

The Denver Post reported Saturday (http://tinyurl.com/oagb2cv ) Wild Bird Information and Rehabilitation of Denver has to leave its current location by Sept. 1 because it’s in violation of zoning ordinances.

A donor has purchased land in Wheat Ridge for a new building, but the center still has to raise money for construction. The group says it needs the money by Nov. 1 to be able to open in time for next spring’s migratory season.

So far it has raised $25,000.

Founder Debbie Strimple says the center gets about 3,000 injured baby birds each summer and the number is growing.
