Subject: [MASSBIRD] ebird report Common Murre 9/1/19
This showed up on my ebird alerts. Looking at the attached image, does it appear to be not well/oiled? Seems like a real odd report; especially where it was found, well inside a protected cove/harbor. Allowed close approach and seemed not to want to get back into water. Could be not able to fly due to missing wing feathers/possibly bird of year not yet able to fly?
