Severe storms hit the Lincoln and Omaha areas this evening. Many areas received hail and unfortunately along with the hail stones falling to the ground, there were also birds falling. The night of the storms these two birds were discovered by the public and the next morning WRT was contacted to assist with helping these birds. The Hooded Merganser had an injured wing and needs time to recuperate. The Lesser Scaup more than likely received a concussion from the hail stones. When the Scaup was picked up, even though it was the next morning, there were still 1/4 sized hail stones all around him. After a few days of recuperating, he was released at an area lake.
