Subject: [NHBirds] Living with a Handicap
Learning to live on one's own is a difficult life transition for fledgling birds as they begin to move about and make their own decisions. Learning to fly, eat and avoid predators are major life skills to be learned as quickly as possible to survive. Add in a handicap that makes it difficult to approach the usual prey, and what's a young bird to do? Read about the behavior modifications adopted by a young Green Heron as it learned to live with a handicap in the Summer 2004 issue of New Hampshire Bird Records: https://nhbirdrecords.org/nhbr-pdfs/V23%20N2%20Summer%202004.pdf
("Survival Struggles of a Young Green Heron" begins on page 45).
Other articles in this issue include: Where to Watch Ospreys in New Hampshire (in 2004!); Spotlight on Worm-eating Warbler; field notes from the 2004 summer season and of course a Photo Quiz. Enjoy them all!
