Help Needed For Unknown bird with broken wing!

by Breezy Edwards
(Virginia, USA)


The poor thing flew into the window trying to fly away from a hawk. Tt broke its wing and lost a lot of blood. I wanna take care of it till it gets better. It's been hours, so i think it's gonna make it. I figure if I know what type of bird it is, I can find out what it eats and stuff. He can't fly, and Icannot just let him lay there and starve! helllp!

Bird With Broken Wing
by: Grandma Jean Anonymous

First of all, wrap the bird carefully in a soft cloth and take it to the nearest veterinarian... most of them know about birds.

Since it lost blood, it is probably wounded, and will need professional care. It is a dove, and they do fly into windows when frightened or when being attacked by hawks. Tell the vet that.

Thank you for caring... those who care are few and far between.
