Thanks for telling us. I am out in the field all day tomorrow but will make
an effort to track him down on Friday if he is still around, or unless
someone else in the neighborhood goes and lets me know (954-922-7981). Call,
because I am not on email every day and don't get in until late tomorrow
(I'll be in Loxahatchee). Also, FYI there is the Wildlife Care Center in
Fort Lauderdale, near to the airport, at SW 4th Avenue across from Snyder
Park. 954-524-4302
