Adult Great Kiskadee
Found an injured(?) Great Kiskadee in my garden.
He doesn't have any external injuries that I can see. But his head/neck is bent to the side.
I assume that his neck isn't "broken" because he is still alive and moving around. Sort of. He is able to flap his wings but I admittedly haven't actually seen him move the rest of his body (I haven't been keeping constant watch because I'm afraid that I'll stress him out with my presence) He also doesn't seem to be able to stand on his legs.
I called a local Wildlife Refuge but they told me that there was nothing they could do. They think that the bird might have flown into a window, that he might have eaten something with pesticides, or that he might be sick with something that's affecting him neurologically.
Don't know what to do. Right now he is in a place that's safe and comfortable. But my heart is hurting for the little guy.
edit: The kiskadee has unfortunately passed away. I'm heartbroken, but perhaps it was for the best. He was suffering for so many hours.
