The injured Black Skimmer rescued in Secaucus on June 9 and brought to the Raptor Trust by the Meadowlands Commission has made a miraculous recovery.
As recently as Monday, the Raptor Trust staff did not think the bird would survive from an apparent impact injury. The bird was force-fed and tube-fed, and suddenly has made an about-face. The NJMC plans to release the bird in the Meadowlands on Friday morning. Link to earlier post is here.
