Fish Crow #16-2468 has continued to fly well during the past ten days. The bird's wing has healed and the patient is able to easily maneuver around its outdoor enclosure.
On February 13, the staff determined that the crow is ready to be released. The rehabilitator who initially stabilized the crow will release the bird near the rescue site in the Tidewater region of Virginia. A volunteer transporter will drive the bird from the Wildlife Center to the rehabilitator on February 14. Happy Valentine's Day, Fish Crow #16-2468!
