Calling all fans from the Long Beach/Rockaways area: Today, we admitted this adult male Long-tailed Duck from Long Beach (in the vicinity of Washington and Lafayette Blvds.) The duck was found on the beach covered in gasoline. We have received a call from another rehabilitator in Brooklyn that admitted a Razorbill today from the Rockaways with gasoline as well. Please keep an eye out on the beaches if you live in these areas. If you find any birds that appear to be in distress on the beach, please take a photo and call us at (516) 674-0982 (7 am to 5 pm) or email anytime at email@example.com (we check email all night!) If you can contain the bird safely with a towel and a box, please do so.
