CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Each year, thousands of protected, threatened or endangered species along the Texas coast become ill or injured, and two of those rehabilitated birds were released on Friday.

The release took place at the Hans and Pat Suter Wildlife Refuge. A Cooper's Hawk and an American Bittern were let back into the wild after both underwent several weeks of rehabilitation at the Texas State Aquarium's Second Chances Wildlife Hospital.

If you ever come across an injured bird, you can contact the local U.S. Fish and Wildlife Office at 361-994-9005.
