Pelican rescue at Elkhorn Slough

WildRescue responder, Ron Eby, who works on the Elkhorn Slough Reserve, sighted a brown pelican on shore near Hummingbird Island. It was very quiet and moved slowly. On closer inspection he found it had a hook embedded in its wing.


The bird was transferred to Monterey SPCA and, when stable, will be driven to International Bird Rescue for a full recovery.
