Nisos, the osprey, came to us over 2 years ago. Somehow he had a self amputation, either by flying into a cable or wire, or he had a situation with a airplane. He lost his left wing tip, so obviously he can't fly or be released.
Ospreys can be hard to care for in captivity. They are a migratory bird, so Alaska is a tough place to keep one year round. In the photos, he has bumper pads on his wrist so he doesn't bang them up in his kennel during shipping.
