Rescuing grebes in Port Hueneme

I've rescued two grebes (water birds) in the last week. One is still sitting under a heat lamp in the master bathroom. He will later be transported to Santa Barbara, where he will be under the care of a volunteer from "Wildlife Care of Ventura County." They will work to bring the little guy back to health. The first grebe I rescued survived, and is doing much better.

Visit for contact information.

Here's a link to an article from February 2008 which gives you good information about how to capture grebes safely (for you and them), and how to care for the grebes in the interim, while you wait for the wildlife rescue helper:
