Dead Birds

A few weeks ago a dead heron was found on Bridgeton Road and today a dead cormorant was found floating in my moorage.

The Audubon Society has been notified of both and I think the dead cormorant was taken to the Society so they could check the cause of death - if possible.

If I recall correctly, the heron had been buried by a neighbor and it may have been too late for the Audubon people to do anything.

More news as it happens - but if you find any dead large birds - let us know and let the Audubon Society know.

These birds were NOT killed by cats or dogs! I saw the cormorant removed from the river and it had no visible damage.
