White Crowned Sparrow stranded cold-stunned in Brewster, Cape Cod, MA, on 7 December, 2014. He was rescued from the beach by the Mass Audubon Society turtle beach patrol volunteers and then transported to the New England Aquarium rehabilitation facility in Quincy, MA. He was very lethargic and had no detectable heart rate. During its extensive rehabilitation at the New England Aquarium and a diet of herring and squid, White Crowned Sparrow gained 7 lbs and grew about 2 inches!
