The place for wild birds.

There are three very graphic photos on this page. These photos may not be suitable for all audiences. Parents and sensitive individuals are strongly cautioned. Bear in mind, however, that this bird was found and brought to us in time to be treated successfully for these injuries.

Often, it is not obvious how or where a bird has been injured. This is an example of the kind of damage feathers can hide.
