If you live on the westside within driving  or walking distance of Marina Del Rey,  you can witness an amazing urban wildlife display  at 13900 Marquesas Way where a heron rookery of at least 30 nests stands. And a  stranded Great Egret, Snowy Egret or Black Crowned NIght Heron chick is probably in the road waiting for you to rescue it before it gets mown down by a car: something that is happening on a daily, if not hourly basis. (This morning, seven dead chicks were discovered). To save a chick, simply provide  your text number for an alert, swing by the marina (parking available), and further instructions will be provided.  Night time drive-bys are also needed. The road is small and quiet. It’s quick–it’s easy–and you’ll be saving a heron chick who would otherwise die in the street. There are people on hand to help. This is a short term act of heroism, as the chicks will fledge and leave the nest soon to go out into the world, provided they can survive today,with your help. DSCN3702.JPG
