Krzysztof K. posted a picture on Facebook of an injured King Rail at Montrose Point, seen yesterday.
I just discussed the situation with Annette Prince, of the Chicago Bird Collision Monitors (CBCM) group. They routinely rescue injured birds, are trained to do so, and she mentioned that there are monitors in the Montrose area who could help.
Her recommendation is that if anyone sees the injured King Rail again, to immediately call the CBCM hotline at (773) 988-1867. They will send someone to properly catch the rail and then take it to rehab.
If you are at Montrose Point over the next few days, please keep an eye for this injured rail, and if you see it, please call and try to be as specific as to its location as possible. Your help is appreciated!
