Spike Is Home!

Spike the baby Yellow-crowned Night Heron was picked up from the Raptor Trust and released into the Anderson Creek Marsh in Secaucus yesterday by Chris Takacs with big assists to the NJSEA’s Angelo Urato and Gaby Bennett-Meany.

Chris writes that Spike was blown out of a tree in Secaucus during the recent tropical storm and was brought to the Raptor Trust to be raised until yesterday’s release. Thanks Chris, Angelo and Gaby!
