San Diegans shows how a classy 4th of July celebration is done.
On the 244th birthday of the United States of America, which is a holiday, patriotic San Diegans are hard at work.
San Diego Humane Society rescued an ailing bald eagle on the 4th of July, said CBS8.
The bald eagle was found ailing on the grounds of the Barrett Youth Correction facility in Alpine.
It was later taken to the San Diego Humane Society on Sunday for treatment.
The iconic animal is one of the nation’s patriotic symbols of America.
Nina Thompson of the San Diego Humane Society said:
“The magnificent bird was rescued and brought to us by SoCal Parrots, after it had been observed on the ground for a couple of days.
“The bald eagle is dehydrated, has been given fluids, and also been treated for mites.
“While the prognosis is guarded, the bird’s condition is stable in the critical care unit (of) our Bahde Wildlife Center.”
There Is Saftey At Home Not In Numbers
Instead of watching live fireworks display in community settings, San Diegans watched live streaming of the events.
These are how the community contribute to flattening the curve of the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
The CW San Diego and Corky Pest Control expressed their gratitude for watching in the safety of their homes.
The show aired lived on the CW San Diego and also streamed live.
On the other hand, Poway still hosted a show.
Poway did this while many communities opted to cancel their fireworks shows due to the pandemic.
The high school football field and stadium were not open for public viewing due to social distancing concerns.
This is unlike previous years’ practices.
After The Revelry
A group of volunteers on Sunday picked up trash at San Diego beaches left by Fourth of July revelers, said CBS8.
The Surfrider Foundation San Diego County conducted a “Morning After Mess” cleanup drive.
Roberta Reilly of the local chapter of the Surfrider Foundation said:
“Litter all over San Diego County goes down the sewage and water drains and ends up in the ocean.”
Surfrider Foundation is an organization that promotes protection of the ocean and beaches.
