Lila had such a busy day at Wild Bird Rescue. She didn’t even get to my aviary until 10:30 this morning to feed me. She had to drive out on Highway 281 to meet a couple of Highway Patrol officers. A Red-tailed Hawk had been hit by a car and was down in the road. Luckily this hawk had no broken bones, just head trauma. Then an Eastern Screech Owl was brought under the same circumstances…hit by a car. The prognosis is not good as it is bleeding internally. The last bird in today was a Cedar Waxwing which had been shot by with a BB gun. It appears to be a grazing wound but this little fellow is not out of the woods. The infirmary is full! Sadly, the “Bent and Broken” season is in full swing. Disheartened for my feathered kin…Phee Phew!
