In Care This Week, Los Angeles

Among the 48 birds in care (by last count) at our Los Angeles center: this beautiful male Bufflehead, treated for a wing laceration, and two American White Pelicans — one of them found injured earlier this month in the Simi Valley area, the other found in Downey.

On December 1, we successfully released another American White Pelican that had been tangled in fishing line and unable to fly. The bird was released back to its pod at the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve.
