Re: [cayugabirds-l] stranded common loon to be rescued Sun.

2011-04-18 Thread David McCartt
I stopped by Goetchius Wetland Presreve this morning (4/18) on my way to work 
and did not see this bird.  Hopefully, this is an indication that the bird was 
successfully rescued.

There was a nice pair of COMMON MERGANSERS close to the road and the drainage 
pipe that might have snared the loon.

Hope a lot of people don't converge on the 
site  traumatize the bird more than it probably will be, if it isn't 
already.

I don't doubt her capabilities one bit. Such people are well trained  
compassionate. I meant the activity of people who might flock to see the 
capture would traumatize the bird. 

I am relieved to know the name of a re-habber in the area. We apparently no 
longer have one here in our area. She was harrassed by certain people who 
apparently had the mentality ( good intentions) of many of PETA 
members. Things done to her were destructive, mean, cruel  thoughtless. Our 
daughter was a re-habber in Florida for a number of yrs.. It's often a 
dangerous  thankless job. At one time she had more  larger snakes in her home 
than did the local zoo.

  For people who don't know. Victoria Campbell is a thoroughly knowledgeable

in our area. She runs Wild Things Sanctuary off Snyder Hill Road. You can bet 
the loon is in the most gentle, capable and ethical of hands with her 
involvement

Yes, on second thought I probably should not have posted the time. 'Twas not 
meant as an invitation -- hopefully if anyone gets in the way Victoria will let 
them know! I'll ask my sister to update me and will let the list know how it 
turned out.

I am going to write here what I feel needs to be. Birders! Please resist the
urge to witness the rescue, and potentially compromise the rescue effort. .
Stay away and let the rehab person do her job. Read about it here - LATER!
Please!!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Stranded Common Loon

My sister-in-law lives on Flat Iron Road across from the Goetchius Preserve.  
She noticed that a Common Loon must have gotten sucked through a culvert from 
the large pond on the other side of the road and is now stuck in a small stream 
with only around 100 ft running upsteam in which to take off.  I know Loons 
need a large body of water for take off.  Is there anyone who would know what 
to do in this situation?

Thanks for any advice or assistance,
Glen
