Not the way we want to welcome in the winter solstice. Just returned from a night call by retrieving this Snowy Owl, found in Aulac in a snowy ditch off the old highway. It didn’t take long to find this poor guy in the dark. He was only able to flop his wings slightly with no hope of getting off the ground. Thank you to the Hicks family who spotted the Owl and called us asking to help.
With all the wet roads it isn’t uncommon to get calls like this one today. An AWI follower found this Red-throated Loon up near Magnetic Hill, NB on the road. Easily mistaken as an open waterway, roadways are big hazards for these waterbirds. With legs very far back on their body which are specifically designed for diving and swimming under water, it is impossible for Loons to take off from land, so this bird was grounded. View More
