Please respect the wishes of the folks at Wild Care and do not phone them. Thanks to Stephanie Ellis for this news and for all the hard work she and others do rehabbing wildlife (including birds). Consider making a contribution!

Hi Friends. We have a very special bird in our care. Please, no visitors or phone calls to Wild Care. He is in grave condition and I do not expect the bird to survive the night. We do provide excellent care at Wild Care, and miracles certainly happen every day, but the bird is very ill. <3 Fingers crossed. Read the full story below. Wild Care rescued from LeCount's Hollow in Wellfleet. Thank you Mark Faherty.

MASKED BOOBY at Wild Care. Friends, we have a very special bird in our care. A rare tropical visitor, swept in with Hurricane Jose. The bird is a Masked Booby. Click the link to read the full story...
We knew we had a booby 👍, but we'd like to thank Mark Faherty of Mass Audubon Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary for the positive species I.D. <3
The bird is in grave condition. We request that you do not visit or call Wild Care for updates. We are not open to the public (by law), and have dozens of seabirds in critical care at this time. Our patients, including this booby <3, are of utmost importance to us. Our animals need supportive care, rest and recuperation. I will post an update tomorrow morning.
