Dovekie (Alle alle) - 13Mar2015

I don't like taking pictures of sick birds but when you get to see a species so close that you rarely see at all you just have to.  In 2015, quite a few Dovekies were showing up inshore and some of them were clearly not doing well.  This one walked right up onto the beach at Cape Point and plopped down to take a rest.  I had already heard from some other folks that took Dovekies to rehabbers that they do not do well in captivity so I left this poor bird as the sun set and hoped for the best.
