Great Blue Yonder

January 20, 2016


This Great Blue Heron was found by two boys in San Antonio Village in the Cayo district and brought to Stephanie and Roni Martinez (famous local birder) on Dec 19, 2015. Initially the bird seemed in critical condition and the pictures sent to BBR indicated an injured, possibly broken wing. 

BBR picked up the animal and the physical showed a weak, skinny bird with parasites, but thankfully no broken wing. 

In the capable hands of the BBR team, with meds, worms, plenty of live fish and lots of TLC, there was a quick recovery.
BBR is happy to announce the release of the beautiful bird on January 2, 2016 at Captain Hook's Shrimp Farm in Ladyville (with kind permission of Charlie, the owner).

I would like to thank Nikki for allowing me to jump into the wonderful work at BBR while I visited, and participating in the rehab and release of this magnificent creature. It was such an amazing feeling to watch him spread those incredible wings and fly off.


BBR, you do great work.

 The pictures we saw looked like a broken wing


 We were very concerned that we were dealing with a bad wing problem
