DFW will not respond to individual birds in distress.  If you can capture the bird, you can take it to an animal rescue place like PAWS or Sarvey if you are unable to remove the netting yourself.  Otherwise, you pretty much have to let nature take its course.

Subject: [Tweeters] netted Hooded Merganser

There is a female Hooded Merganser at Magnuson Park that has become entangled with some plastic netting. I first noted this bird on Thursday (https://goo.gl/3117by) but the netting was still attached on Saturday.
Any suggestions on what could be done to free her? She seems to be surviving the predicament, diving and eating with the RN Ducks with whom she has been associating. But, when I saw her fly between ponds, it seemed as if she was laboring.
