Surveilled osprey rescued at Frederick Douglass bridge in D.C.

FREDERICK DOUGLASS MEMORIAL BRIDGE, Aug. 7. The Department of Homeland Security reported that a bird was stuck in the grating of the bridge. Before Animal Control arrived, the bird was free but then flew into the path of a truck and was struck. City Wildlife rescue group kept the uninjured but temporarily dazed osprey overnight for observation, then released it the next day near the bridge, where four young ospreys and three adult ospreys were seen flying around.

Among cases handled by the Washington Humane Society.
