A History of Oregon Ornithology: From Territorial Days to the Rise of Birding Edited by…
During the Migratory Bird Day morning event, three of our volunteers rescued a Canada Goose from fishing line tangled around its leg and foot.
Rachael noticed it and sat with the bird, feeding and talking to it.
LaRue got a blanket and Kyle used it to catch the goose. He then used his Leatherman tool to cut off all the fishing line. The goose was released, fluffed it’s feathers and continued to graze nearby, free of its shackles and unharmed.
Thanks to Rachael, Kyle and LaRue for the extra effort in helping this goose!
