This baby Green Heron was found in Discovery Bay, CA with injuries, and re-nesting was unfortunately not an option. The heron is currently in a warm enclosure within the center's ICU, which is also kept at a very warm temperature for a steady trickle of orphans coming in (mainly ducklings and goslings). The door to the enclosure is covered by a pillow case to reduce any visual stress.
