If you spot a bird , particularly a young one that appears to be abandoned or in difficulty, do not try to catch it right away. Take a few minutes to observe its behavior, as it may simply be waiting for a parent to return. Adult birds will often briefly leave their young to hunt for food and then return to care for them.

Rescued bird's mystery ailment turns out to be that it ate a bunch of wet wipes© Provided by Hearst Newspapers A goose was sickened after eating baby wipes and balloons this week on the Central Coast, according to Santa Barbara County Animal Services.

Much attention has been paid to the potential for wet wipes to wreak havoc on public sanitation systems, clumping together to create monstrous "fatbergs" that haunt our sewers, but on Tuesday, another, sadder drawback of the popularity of wipes became apparent: Sometimes animals eat them.

A goose on the Central Coast was one such victim of the wet wipe menace, according to Santa Barbara County Animal Services.

A concerned bystander at Waller Park in the Santa Maria Valley noticed the goose acting as if she was injured and called animal control on Monday.

Two officers reported to the scene and impounded the sick goose, "with help." At first, the situation seemed to be something of a mystery: She did not appear to be injured.

Once she was brought back to the shelter, however, veterinarians were able to evaluate her and get to the root of the problem. She had a taste for junk food, literally.

"We soon realized that her problem was TRASH," Santa Barbara County Animal Services wrote on Tuesday. "She had ingested baby wipes and balloons (and who knows what else) and needed some extra support so she could pass these foreign objects."

The goose is expected to make a full recovery and be able to rejoin her flock, they said.

Santa Barbara County Animal Services has asked the public to be more judicious with how they dispose of their trash in the future.

Drought wipes popular Chilean lake from the map.
Lake Aculeo's demise is so sudden and complete it seems as if someone had pulled a giant plug and let all the water out. So sudden was it that as recently as 2011 the 4.6 square-mile (12 square-kilometer) lagoon was a thriving weekend getaway for people from the Chilean capital an hour away. Thousands came here to swim, water-ski, sail or simply cool off in the long austral summer. They camped along its shores and lined up for tables at busy lakeside restaurants. Now, water and cooling summers on Lake Aculeo are a fast receding memory.
