Prudhoe Bay Raven

Ruth and I went to the airport to pick up a raven from Prudhoe Bay, AK. For those of you that don't know where that is, look at the top of the Alaska state map. It came down on a BP contracted plan sent by Fish & Wild Life. He had a white band with the letters wy on it. He seemed in fair condition. We fixed him a place to stay at Bird TLC. As soon as we put him in a mew he started eating. That's always a good sign.

He seems to be doing pretty good. He had some injuries that we didn't pick up on when we bedded it down after picking it up at the airport. He has some singed feathers and a resporatory problem. He must have been around an incinerator or something. It's eating well and seems to putting on weight.
