Update on Northern Pintail: Adopted!

Northern Pintail 1

This past weekend, we brought you news of a female Northern Pintail that our Los Angeles center received after she had been struck by a car near The Queen Mary in Long Beach. An injury to her keel required surgical repair by our veterinarian, though the prognosis for a full recovery is very good.

We’re happy to announce that our friends at The Queen Mary saw this story and have offered to symbolically adopt this pintail to support its rehabilitative care!

International Bird Rescue’s Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay centers depend on the support of local business to care for wild animals affected by the urban environment. Queen Mary’s generosity is a wonderful example of this: Please give them a shout-out on Facebook for this Northern Pintail adoption!
