Support in these hard times
Unfortunately, several rehabilitation facilities throughout the region have been forced to reduce or completely suspend their treatment services due to the effects of COVID-19, and consequently, our medical clinic is packed with patients from all over the state! In fact, we have already admitted 100 more birds than we did in the first half of 2019, and currently, we have nearly twice our average patient load.
This fledgling Yellow-crowned Night Heron (Ncytanassa violacea), like many of its species, ended up out of the nest and vulnerable on the ground near Charleston’s White Point Garden. Fortunately, it was only slightly underweight and otherwise uninjured, and we were able to release it into a rookery area filled with young of the year herons, egrets, and other wading birds.
There are several ways you can support our work during these busy times including monetary donations and by purchasing items from our Amazon wish list. To learn more, visit https://www.thecenterforbirdsofprey.org/support/.
