A few weeks ago, we posted about a Western Grebe brought to our San Francisco Bay Area wildlife center with hook injuries in her back, leg and mouth. As you can see from the photo above, we’re happy to report this beautiful bird is doing much better!

Also, this oiled Brant Goose (left) is being treated for bilateral injuries at our Los Angeles wildlife care center, while this Red-necked Grebe (right), found injured and grounded in Penngrove, Calif., was released back to the wild Saturday.

Check out our latest count of birds in care here.
