Nazca Booby died

Dear friends,

 

I just heard from Kim Peterson at Sea World that the latest Nazca Booby from Coronado—the subadult with a nevertheless bright orange bill—died suddenly today. The sternum and coracoid were badly broken. The specimen has been saved, so we will prepare it for preservation in the museum’s research collection. I may set up my garage as a remote lab….

 

Good birding—from your home and neighborhood,
