Death-Defying Bird Goes Back To The Wild
A bird with a broken wing is never good news.
This chap had a very poor prognosis; a fracture of the left wing, not fixable with surgery. All we could do was splint the fracture and see if we could get it to heal with rest and care. Slowly but surely, a solid callus formed around the fracture. We were then able to put him into a larger enclosure to allow him to stretch and build up his wing muscles. After a few weeks, we could see that he was ready to go back to the wild!
Watch the video see how he leaves the box like a bullet!
Another success story!
