A Least Bittern was found this morning on the sidewalk in front of Jeff Purvey’s Restaurant at Brookdale Plaza in Peterborough. It was easily captured and put in a cardboard box. Late this afternoon, it was taken to an animal hospital for x-rays and may end up going to a wildlife rehabilitation centre in Minden. It is unable to fly.
