In response to Darrel's email below, I looked and found the following story plus photo that is presumably of the female Brown Booby picked up by Oregon Coast Aquarium staff near Depoe Bay on Feb. 4. The date and location of when the booby was found do not match what Darrel heard on KNPT yesterday, but the story by OregonCoastDailyNews, which is the Yaquina Bay Communications Radio web site came out yesterday, too, so I suspect that it is probably be the same bird. KNPT is part of Yaquina Bay Communications Radio. The booby below was transported to California like Darrel heard on the radio.
Note that after reading the article that is in the Oregon Coast Aquarium tab of the OregonCoastDailyNewsweb site, I think the title is incorrect and that it should be "Tropical Bird Rescued By Oregon Coast Aquarium"
Excerpt: "When winter storms pushed a female brown booby (Sula leucogaster) far north of its tropical range into the waters off the central Oregon coast, aviculture staff at the Aquarium rushed to rescue the bird on February 4 and bring it in for rehabilitation. After a ten-day recuperation at the Aquarium, the bird was flown to International Bird Rescue (IBR) in San Pedro, California on February 14."
Please read the rest of the article for more information.
