Betsy is a female Brown Pelican who came to us more than 15 years ago. She is 90% blind – her left eye has only slight vision. Why is she blind? We will never know. We suspect she encountered a virus. Until very recently, Betsy served as the Marathon Wild Bird Center’s ambassador at community gatherings, and was a classroom favorite. She’s now retired, and enjoys the company of other forever guests at the bird center. Although we’ve witnessed Betsy self-feeding, she is regularly hand-fed thread herring and capelin twice a day. Please come by and pay her a visit!
