Florida Audubon Association releases video tutorial on how to rescue entangled birds

Tampa Auditorium Association, St. Petersburg and the Manatee County Audubon Association worked with cinematographer Dee Fairbanks Simpson to produce a short documentary that describes the dangers of fishing gear to birds, especially pelicans, and how fishermen can Release the entangled birds safely.

Fishing gear entanglement has been identified by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Audubon Florida as a major cause of death and injury for Brown Pigeons in Florida.

This documentary uses puppets, actors, interviews and live footage to explain the problem, showing how to avoid catching a bird in a fishing tackle, how to carefully wind the line and how to Cut a prong from a hook or line wrapped around a wing or foot.

The video is presented in two lengths, the 21-minute length explains the pelican problem when the line and hook appear and the 5-minute shorter version describes how anyone can safely release a bird without causing further damage to it .

Fishing is a great activity for fishermen of all ages, and part of the fishing profession is responsible for managing the line and releasing untargeted animals that are caught by accident. Fishermen carefully release the designated fish and release them; If a person accidentally traps a bird, they should release it so it can live wild and free.

The steps to safely release an accidentally caught bird are simple:

  • Have someone else help you hold the bird while you untangle or detangle.
  • Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes.
  • Secure the head firmly, fold the wings over the bird’s body gently and hug the feet.
  • Gently covering the bird’s eyes with a towel or cloth will calm the bird, making it easier to remove the hook or line.
  • Use wire shears to cut the prongs and hook the hook upside down from the meat. Trim and remove any lines.
  • Check the wings, legs, and torso for additional hooks or strings, as many birds have entangled in the past.
  • Point the bird’s head toward the water and back as you release the bird.
