Once tangled in discarded fishing line, osprey released

Kim Begay is a volunteer bird rescuer with the Clearwater Audubon Society. She has also taken it upon herself to rid the Dunedin Causeway of discarded fishing line. Monday she got a call to rescue an osprey on the causeway that had become entangled in fishing line and the fishing line had gotten entangled on some barnacles trapping the bird. Begay freed the bird from the line and took the bird to a veterinarian that gave it a shot of antibiotics and treated a cut on the top of it's foot. Begay released the bird Tuesday afternoon in a vacant lot near the causeway but away from power lines. [Jim Damaske |] (Dec. 3, 2013)
