Urgent. Grebe needs help.
This poor grebe is ensnared at the Berkeley Aquatic Park.
The only Western in the park this evening (Tues. 24 Jan. 2012), he was acting strangely in a raft of ducks and coots. When I got home and looked at the photos it can be seen that poor bird is ensnared in what looks like rubber tubing which goes around his neck and probably legs. He can't draw his head back far enough to get the tube (?) out of his mouth.
He should be easy to net in this situation.
Does anyone know who to contact to get help?
