By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Hurricanes knock anything in their way; it doesn’t matter if what’s in the way are buildings, trees, people, or animals (birds included).
Such appears to have been the case of a Blue Winged Teal found by the men working on the recovery efforts at Half Moon Caye after the island, like much of Belize, was hit by Hurricane Lisa last week.
“While the Belize Audubon Society Rangers and the Belize Coastguard were cleaning the island of debris and making repairs on the living quarters, they happened to notice a bird on the ground,” said the Belize Audubon Society in a social media post entitled ‘Hurricane Victim Recovers on Half Moon Caye’.
“It didn’t fly away; it didn’t resist when being picked up. The team gave it water and food and hoped for the best while they worked hard to return Half Moon to a proper state for visitors.
“We are happy to report that perhaps it was all the wind that knocked the gusto out of the Blue winged Teal. It recovered and flew into the island’s forest which is a haven for booby birds and other species.”
Good job by the BAS that, like the rest of Belize, has been working hard to recover from the devastating effects of Hurricane Lisa which swept across the country last week Wednesday.
