Not all raptors....
Another first for birds coming to IBR. This is an American Bittern. It was found on Friday in Powell alongside an alley hiding in some weeds. As it was still there today the owner of the property called the local cops and they called me.
If attitude has anything to do with this bird it will make a complete recovery and dare anyone to dispute that statement. He's very quick with his beak in trying to stab everything so his name is KNIEVEL because he's so evil. The problem is a broken leg so he goes in tomorrow for xrays to see if it's repairable. Luckily they eat just about anything so buying frozen shell-on shrimp will work as will mice. Now all I have to do is get it to eat those things and not me.
