Ruddy-DuckAmong the releases from our San Francisco Bay center this past week is a Ruddy Duck, one that spent several days in an outdoor pool featured on International Bird Rescue’s BirdCam Project.

Ruddy Ducks are common patients at both our California centers. In L.A., we recently cared for two ruddies that had “crash-landed” in Los Feliz and Hollywood, while last summer our L.A. team cared for another ruddy with a wing laceration injury.

Above, the latest Ruddy Duck in care goes through a release evaluation prior to returning to the wild. Go Ruddy!
