ACE to the Rescue

BE 08-63 was brought to Anchorage from Dutch Harbor by our friends at ACE Air Cargo. That's 800 air miles free of charge. This isn't their first time.

It has some minor injuries that was keeping it on the ground so it was eating at the dump. It was rescued by U.S.F.&W. and shipped via ACE. It'll spend some time getting some r&r and some good food so it can get it's strength back. We figure it's a second year bird. Check out it's coloration.

If you ship within Alaska, check out ACE and also tell them thanks from Bird TLC.

When will his white feathers come in, Dave?

Dave said...

It should start turning in maybe a year. It will take at least two to three years to complete.
