I received the following email this morning stating that Al can fly and
land, and that the International Bird Rescue and Research Center in
Fairfield has been contacted. There is hope.
"Thanks for your concern. We are assessing Al's condition when he
returns to Arena Cove and have been in touch with International Bird
Rescue and Research Center in Fairfield, who will accept and treat the
bird if necessary. At the present time Al is able to fly and land, so
there is good reason to hope for the best.
