It is in a seabird Rehabilitation sanctuary so it will be released when it is better.

Oh, I'd love you to add this and any other raptor spottings to the mission Raptors of North America: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8627...

Is this a bird that's going to be released? Or an educational bird?? If you click on Liam's link to BirdForum above, there are pictures of both a male and a female...once you see the male, you'll never forget!! They're so colorful!!

How do you tell a female from a male?
