I am a Florida Scrub-Jay
The lower part of my leg can no longer be seen
I most likely lost it to a predator
Now I go by the name Eileen.

FYI, this bird appears to be healthy, is eating well, gets along with its family, can fly and land, and is able to put weight on the remaining stump. 

(Shout out to Chelsea for suggesting a name for this bird! )

Location: St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park, Fellsmere
