Black Skimmer Rescue by Laurel Hill

   Sorry for yet another Black Skimmer post but… Former NJMC Naturalist Don Smith found a Black Skimmer (above) that was unable to fly today near Laurel Hill in Secaucus.
   Workers told him of an injured bird that "looked like a Toucan."
   When Don located the bird, it was flapping its wings but could not get airborne.
    The Meadowlands Commission took the bird to the Raptor Trust in the Great Swamp for medical attention. We will update you on its condition.
    Other rescues included a Double-crested Cormorant (click here), a Snowy Egret (click here), and a Red-tailed Hawk (click here).
