Vered Nograd, hospital director for the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center, handles a mourning dove at the hospital in Tavernier.  The smaller birds are often knocked out of trees due to pruning in preparation for hurricane season. The hospital has a fully certified staff capable and prepared for an influx of bird if the spill reaches the Florida Keys shores. The Florida Keys Wild Bird Center houses and rehabilitates hundreds of rescued birds from the Keys and surrounding areas with the use of a hospital and sanctuary. Photographed on May 21, 2010.
