Patient Updates

Every day new patients arrive at our facility. In an effort to tell their story of survival and highlight the diverse number of species that we rehabilitate, we highlight a new patient each week. Some of these are individuals, others are orphaned siblings. As their cases progress - we will update the outcome - our hope is that many, many of these patients are released!

Northern Shoveler

Northern Shoveler - this adorable little dabbling duck came in last week after it was discovered at the Marysville sewage treatment plant. It was unable to walk and obviously injured. It had a serious wound on its bottom, near the vent that was bleeding and full of maggots. It looked like a bite from a predator attack.


It was dehydrated and unable to stand. It is a juvenile, so too soon to tell if it is male or female. The wound is nearly healed and it is standing up now and enjoying bath time. These ducks have a unique spoon-shaped bill, squared tongue, and the comb like projections that act like a filter. Status - died. Sadly, the injures were too severe and it passed away.
