From my days at Great Gull Island and juvenile terns a drooping wing was a sign of failing birds. Typically they did not make another day. I had seen, and unsuccessfully tried to help, a few. It was an island with limited resources and scarce boats to rehab.

If a rehab person is willing to take it can they go and see it? Or have pictures been sent to a rehab person?
