Endangered Bird Rescued

On Monday, April 20, we received a call from a concerned resident in regards to a large bird in his backyard that wasn't moving. This wasn't our regular "jail-bird!"

This is an American Bittern. While it's normally found in marshlands, this angry fellow is an endangered species in Pennsylvania.
American Bittern

He will be going with Wildlife In Need PA to get any help he needs and hopefully be successfully released back into the wild.
