Unfortunately, most of the birds at Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park were injured and unreleasable. The only good thing is they are well-cared for and it gives the general public a rare chance to observe them up close. The large, hooked beak is used for tearing the flesh from fish. The talons are used for capturing the fish.
