I've seen duct tape used to fix just about everything you can imagine, but I never thought I would add "Great Blue Heron leg" to the list. Now, to be clear, the heron's leg was not fixed solely by duct tape. The splint that stabilized the fractured bone in his lower leg also included a plastic tube, gauze padding and, at one point, a rubber band. But duct tape was used to cover it all and keep it clean and dry. In the photo below you can see the heron wearing his splint a few weeks after admission.
