|Zack scans one of the beaches in Southern California.|
This weekend we had Wildlife SAR responders checking beaches from Malibu to Santa Barbara, looking for oiled birds. While scanning the beach near UCSB, Zack and Yvette came across a double-crested cormorant that was in trouble. Zack reports:
It had a long heavy piece of seaweed wrapped around its leg, leaving it unable to fly. A bit of patience, strategy and a quick sprint as he went for the water & i netted him. He had a couple of stabs at me while I untangled the weed, but all good, and he flew away fit & healthy.Way to go!!!
