The search is still on for the cruel prankster who has been putting beer cans around birds necks in the San Francisco Bay Area. So far at least 5 birds have been spotted with these aluminum collars. Sightings have come in from Lake Merced and Pier 39 and as far south as Half Moon Bay.

Rescuers are asking people to call the WildRescue hotline to report sightings: (831) 429-2323 or emailing

Two organizations are collaborating on this rescue effort: International Bird Rescue (Fairfield) and WildRescue (Monterey. They are seeking the public’s help is locating the birds. They ask that instead off attempting to capture the birds, which can make them more wary and harder to catch, sightings should be reported immediately.
