One Oriental Dwarf Kingfisher (𝘊𝘦𝘺𝘹 𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘤𝘢) was turned over by Cloud A. Jaranilla of Purok Banaba, Barangay Sicsican, Puerto Princesa City to the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development Staff (PCSDS) on September 22, 2021.
According to Atty. David Jaranilla, Cloud’s father, the bird accidentally hit their mirrored wall and fell to the ground, and the dogs were barking at it when Cloud found it outside their house on the same day. Fearing that their pets would harm the bird, he reported the incident to the PCSDS. The PCSDS Species Habitat Management Section staff was immediately dispatched to the area to retrieve the bird.
On the same day, the Oriental Dwarf Kingfisher was released back to its natural habitat.
