Red-footed Booby - Miami-Dade County FL - 12/19/09

Hi All,

A young Red-footed Booby was found at Pelican Harbor on the 19th between Miami and the beaches to the east!!! The bird was last reported on 12/21! The booby was released from the Pelican Harbor Seabird Station (a rehab center for birds and small mammals) about two weeks prior to the reported sighting!

There are also some interesting posts on the TAS Miami Bird Board concerning the status of the ABA-countability of the bird!
