After being with Red Door for over six years, Kristin thought she had heard everything. But the phone call tonight was a new one: someone said he had spotted a sick pelican around the Pratt Avenue pier. Could we tell him how to help?
Uh, no. But we could give him the number of Flintcreek Wildlife Rehabilation, who came to Pratt and the lake and rescued the pelican. Yes, it's a wild pelican--Flintcreek says that pelicans around Chicago aren't that unusual--and it is injured.
We're hoping for the best and know that the pelican is in good hands. To follow its progress, check out www.flintcreekwildlife.org
