Was this little Western Grebe chick struck by cupid’s arrow? As babies, the Western Grebe has a patch of bare skin on its forehead, which remarkably turns a bright red color when the chick is hungry. Once fed, the redness fades away – until the chick is once again hungry.
This Valentine’s Day, celebrate by adopting a grebe in honor of your special someone. It’s an unexpected, unique, and thoughtful gesture that will help a bird in need and leave a lasting impression. Storms in January brought dozens of grebes into care in need of decontamination, nutrition, and medical care. Your support goes a long way towards giving them a second chance at life.
Tag us on social media, and we’ll share a photo of a grebe in care that you’re helping this Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re thinking of a dear friend, sibling, parent or sweetheart, give the gift that makes a difference!
