Good News for the Great Blue Heron


The oil covered Heron who was rescued and treated at CROW last week was safely released from Bunche Beach on Oct. 10th.  The bird’s release drew a lot of attention from beach goers. The Heron needed a little encouragement to get out of the cage but then took off happy to return to the wild.

The Heron is one of many animals recently released by CROW. A Red bellied Cooter, Laughing Gull, Chuck-will’s-Widow and a Red shouldered hawk were also returned to the land and sea. CROW currently has 142 patients and total patients admitted this year is 4,731!!!
