Found on road half alive

by Lauren

This bird is about 5 inches tall, wingspan is maybe 8-10 inches. He has a long, pointy, and yellow/tanish in color beak. Black feathers with a little bit of gray interlaced with the black feathers. I live in south Florida, I found him in a heavily wooded residential neighborhood located in Fort Lauderdale. I have never seen a breed like this one. I believe it may have been attacked by a cat or fox, as he has I cut on his underside near his right leg and the feathers on his head are stuck in a 'Gelled' like position that makes me believe his head was in an animals mouth. I want to nurse him back to health so that he may be released back to the wild. Does anyone have any insight, I'd greatly appreciate it!!

Lauren, your best bet is to find a bird rehabilitation centre in your area.
