The Oceanside red-footed booby

Is being tormented by numerous people (non-birders) and exhibiting signs of acute stress. While it can escape them temporarily by roosting on the roof, this whole situation must be debilitating to the bird.

I would think it likely that at some point soon Project Wildlife or the Humane Society will be asked to come to rescue the bird. In this case, my suggestion is that if you wish to see it, it would behoove you to go to see it sooner rather than later.
