Bobby the bird still on the loose

TREASURE ISLAND – Bobby, the American Kestrel falcon that escaped recently from the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, has been seen here, but is still loose.

Ralph Heath, the sanctuary’s executive director, said someone called him to report seeing the falcon. It is distinguishable by leather straps dangling from its feet, though Heath said one has since fallen off.

“Bobby was seen flying low with no apparent health issues,” Heath said. “He must have found a food source or he would not have survived this long.”

The bird escaped on Dec. 31 while it was being transferred between cages at the Indian Shores sanctuary. He was spotted in several towns, including Pinellas Park.

Bobby is about 12 inches high with a 24-inch wingspan. It has blue-gray wings and a reddish brown and lightly spotted chest and belly.
