Animal Control officers have received several reports of “downed” birds and ask residents to be alert and aware of the issue. Likely thrown off their migratory track due to recent frigid weather, the Eared Grebes are being found around Fairfax County.

They have webbed feet and are typically birds that swim and fly, and are not accustomed to walking, so they appear wobbly or injured. The Fairfax County Wildlife Biologist identified the birds.

Police are coordinating with local veterinarians and the Wildlife Rescue League for a humane re-location of the birds.
