A Black-crowned Night heron (above) was recently admitted to WildCare’s Wildlife Hospital with a severely fractured femur. This heron was fortunate that WildCare’s veterinarian, Dr. Juliana Sorem, has been working to master the techniques of orthopedic surgery on birds.  The heron was an obviously healthy bird laid low by an accidental injury, which made him an excellent candidate for this surgery. After successful surgery and rehabilitation, the heron was released back to his natural habitat.

Art lovers Jerry Reilly and Ellen Desmond (above) discuss their impressions at the opening reception of “Artists Favorite,” the latest exhibition of art put on by the Marin Society of Artists in downtown San Rafael on March 8. Each artist was asked to put forth their own personal favorite art work, giving the exhibition a closer look at each artist. Approximately 100 visitors attended the show on its opening night and helped raise $1,300 for the event. The show exhibition will run through March 30.
