Lost and Found!

At the Virginia Beach SPCA, our wildlife emergency team
mainly uses Internet communication to respond to wildlife emergencies in our
area. The other day, our wildlife referral line volunteer posted that someone
had found a small parrot in their yard. They tried to capture it and it bit
them. So, a post for assistance went out.

Great Blue Heron Rescue

Rick called that Sunday afternoon about a possible injured Great Blue Heron in my area. Could I go check it out? I logged into the VBSPCA Yahoo Group page and got the address and contact info. I spoke to the property owner, who gave me directions and said that the GBH had been a resident in their canal for many years. The last two days, however, he had not left the canal behind their home and appeared to have a wing injury.
