A Great Blue Heron fledgling was brought in this week after being found alone in an industrial area. Initially, it was weak and dehydrated, but the bird is doing well now and staff hope to return it to the wild. First, they need to figure out where it came from - stay tuned for updates.

Update: The heron was returned safely to the wild a little over a month after it arrived at the care center. It learned how to hunt and fly in Portland Audubon's flight cages, and when released, the bird flew off.
