NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- Park rangers and bird lovers are working to save a duck in Central Park who has a plastic ring stuck on her beak.

On Saturday, the Twitter account @BirdCentral Park tweeted that a common merganser hen was spotted on the Central Park Lake and would need a rubber band removal.

By Monday morning, bird watchers had lost sight of the hen. Park rangers began using boats to search for the bird, but were unable to find her.

The search for the hen continues.
