Among the birds in care this week at our Bay Area center is this male Bufflehead (Bucephala albeola) found on a San Francisco street in the aftermath of weekend storms. Rehabilitation technician Isabel Luevano notes that the bird had some minor abrasions on his feet from being on the road but is quickly regaining strength and is heading toward release.
