Western Grebe with Fish Hook Injuries

Yet another innocent bird injured by fish hooks — in this case, a Western Grebe with hook injuries in her back, leg and mouth. Staff at our San Francisco Bay Area center have removed the hooks, and the bird is recovering, though has a long way to go. (Photo by Isabel Luevano.)

This holiday season, we are offering honorary adoptions starting at just $25 that make wonderful gifts for the wildlife lovers in your life. Help support this bird’s recovery: Find out about our Adopt-a-Bird program here.
