    About Nellie McKay:
    Hailed by the New Yorker as "funny and touching, ceaselessly clever and scarily talented," award-winning singer, songwriter, actress, and writer Nellie McKay continues to find inspiration in the unlikely and often obscure in order to delight and enlighten her audiences. While her musical style, which draws heavily from the worlds of jazz and mid-century pop, is accessible and familiar, her unbridled creativity and willingness to take her audience on unexpected adventures makes her an artist capable of constant and illuminating surprises. A recipient of The Humane Society's Doris Day Music Award and PETA's Guardian Award in recognition of her dedication to animal rights, Nellie is known as an annoyingly vocal advocate for feminism, civil rights, and other deeply felt progressive ideals.

    About Wild Bird Fund:
    Wild Bird Fund, a nonprofit 501(c)(3), provides emergency care to NYC's wild birds - native and migrant - as well as some mammals and reptiles. New York City is home or a migratory stopover to more than 370 species of birds, reptiles and mammals. Patients range from ruby-throated hummingbirds and mute swans to rarities such as Virginia rails, peregrine falcons and flying squirrels. While many birds pass through NYC without incident, others encounter deadly man-made hazards: skyscraper windows, cars and bicycles, poisonous chemicals and entangling garbage. Of these, the lucky ones end up at WBF. We take in distressed wildlife from Central Park Conservancy, New York City Audubon, NYPD, NYFD, Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, Urban Park Rangers, Animal Care & Control, and thousands of compassionate New Yorkers. WBF does not receive funding from any public agency and is solely supported by donations from caring individuals, foundations, and corporations. Eighty percent of the work is done by more than 200 volunteers.
