As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A bird rescue organization says a pelican found with its pouch slashed will undergo surgery in Southern California.

The International Bird Rescue says authorities have offered a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who mutilated the California brown pelican.

The wounded bird was found April 16 near Bayshore Park in Long Beach.
