Capturing an injured swan
Posted 28 May 2012 - 11:18 PM
The plan is to capture the bird and remove the hook and then the vet will administer an antibiotic and evaluate the bird. The attempts so far have involved herding it with kayaks and hiding in the brush to attempt to catch it when as it retreats from the kayaks. The bird will retreat across the lake, but then it flies away as it nears the area with the nets.
Has anyone done anything like this?
Any ideas on how to capture the bird?

The bird has been captured, treated by the wildlife vet, and released. In the end, the key was to go at night.
Bet that didn't help with the photo documentation.
