In what is easily the strangest rescue call GCBR has had to date. this Great Blue Heron was spotted in a St Pete neighborhood by a concerned resident.
The Heron had fishing line with what appeared to be a dead as well as decomposing Tern attached to its beak. The Heron was caught by a GCBR rescuer and with the help of local neighbors, untangled, checked for any other injuries, deemed releasable and set free. Big thanks to locals that called in and of course our dedicated volunteer rescuers!
