Oceanside area has a history of white raven sightings, but few seem to survive a year.

A rare juvenile white raven with blue eyes found on the ground near Errington, B.C., about three weeks ago is now being treated in a local wildlife recovery centre.

The starved young raven couldn't fly and needed antibiotics for infected wounds on its feet, according to caregivers.

"It was pretty emaciated," said Derek Downes, the animal care supervisor at the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre in Errington, located near Parksville on the east coast of Vancouver Island.

These mysterious pale birds have appeared occasionally in the rural area for decades, but nobody is sure why they show up and disappear.

The nameless raven, which has not yet been identified as male or female, was tube-fed as its condition improved. After a 10-day course of antibiotics, Downes said the bird began eating on its own.

With the guidance of veterinarian Dr. Malcolm McAdie, the raven is getting another round of antibiotics in the hope that the bird can overcome its setbacks.
