I got an update on the Brown Booby from Jen today (along with the photos accompanying this post).
She [the Brown Booby] is actually doing really well. We have her in an open area in ICU and she has branches to perch on. She is eating a lot of herring and stinking up the joint! She gave me a nice bite on the arm that made an amazing bruise! I am thinking that she will need to get sent to a rehab place in California and that is going to cost some money. We may need to ask for help on this one!
I am sending a couple more photos in case you want to write an update. BTW, this is an amazing bird, so much fun to watch her eat and just see her behaviors. Very cool!
If you’re able to help the Raptor Center out, I’m sure they would appreciate the support. They do some amazing work rehabilitating birds (not just raptors!) that are found weak or injured both locally and from elsewhere in Southeast Alaska. On their website they have a donate page as well as a gift shop.
Thanks to Jen for the update!
