An Eastern Cattle Egret was turned over to the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development Staff (PCSDS) on January 21, 2021, Thursday, by Staff Sergeant (SSG) Peter Johnix V. Señorin of the PAF – Tactical Operations Wing West (TOW West).
Staff Sergeant Señorin said that he found the bird in the late afternoon of January 20, 2021, Wednesday, on the side of the road inside the TOW West compound in Brgy. San Miguel, Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. He further said that there were other Egrets in the area, but this particular one was not able to fly. Upon closer inspection, he found that the bird had an injury on its head.
Immediately after, Staff Sergeant Señorin decided to surrender it to the proper authorities so that it can be given proper medical attention and be nurtured back to health. He took the bird and turned it over to the PCSDS office as soon as possible. In turn, the PCSDS brought the Eastern Cattle Egret to the Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center (PWRCC) for its needed rehabilitation.
The Eastern Cattle Egret is listed as “Least Concern Species” under the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
