Species Account Note The bird was brought to me by 4 people who had found it on Highway 71 along Bownlee Reservoir. They said it had been hit by a car and the injuries on it appeared consistent with that statement. It was fatally wounded but not yet dead. I disposed of it at the Cecil D. Andrus WMA. I did not sex or age it.

Location Note A fatally injured but not yet dead Great Blue Heron was found on Highway 71 along Brownlee Reservoir by 4 people who brought it to the Andrus WMA. The people did not give me a good description for where along Brownlee it was found, so it could be anywhere, but somewhere between Mile 4.5 to mile 1 would be the most likely location.
