BE 05-17 was sent back to Cordova on Monday for release after rehabilitation. Terri sent him to us from there a couple months back. The bird was comatose when he got here. He had eated something extremely foul and developed what we call rotten crop. After having his crop flushed for about a week, tube feed and vitamin shots daily until he was eating on his own again, he was ready to go home.
Thanks to Terri in Cordova for sending him to us and then releasing him back again. She now has a feathered friend in the tree tops.
