Patient of the Week: Black-crowned Night Heron
This Black-crowned Night Heron is looking healthy, and has found his barking squawk, after arriving at Tucson Wildlife Center as a dehydrated orphaned nestling. Found near a lake with no nest or adult in sight, the nestling had only minimal down feathers, leaving it helpless and vulnerable to the elements.
He has spent his time at TWC getting all the support necessary to develop into a strong adult. We are happy to see his progress and are looking forward to his eventual release.
Watch his video below and see his pics below the video!
Stay tuned for updates!
