About 4 weeksold.

Charis,

Sounds like a little sweetie pie. I'll check back tomorrow to see how Tux is doing. Hope it is just a sprained leg. Thank you both Rebhart and Charis for taking care of this little one.

This squeaker needs more than I can provide and I'm sorely disappointed that there are no avian vets available here this week. While I can't feel any broken bones, my gut tells me that poor Tux may have been kicked by a human, rather than falling from the nest....or fallen and then kicked. It will need to wait until Monday though.
He's a bugger to feed, never had one more difficult. Very adorable and very pathetic too. Right now Tux is resting against his donut and admiring his cute little self in the mirror.

Charis, I love how you put it….I had a very difficult day but you really made me smile..
I hope little Tux will be OK and am look forward to your update!

BTW, I love your quote from Chief Seattle. I was really touched by his spirit. This is my favorite his quote.
“ The president in Washington
says that he wishes to buy
our land...This we know:
the earth does not belong to us—
we belong to the earth.
We did not weave the web of life
—we are merely strands in it.
Whatever we do to the web
we do to ourselves. “
He made this statement in 1852. It is so true, more human keep destroying our mother earth and wildlife, we are really hurting ourselves…I wish more people would take time to stop during their busy day to day lives and enjoy what this beautiful earth can offer to us…
Then I know more people will really appreciate and protect what we have…

He was found in down town in front of the US Bank Bldg. I will take pictures tomorrow when I have some help. He moves around a lot and so it difficult to take a picture and keep him in one place at the same time.

I want to add that their seem to be very few pigeons around Portland lately. I suspect there has been some after dark trapping going on... so few it feels like the twilight zone.

Tux just honored me with a wing slap...this after eating a bit of seed on his own. Quite the feisty one. [probably an independent thinker too!]

Just catching up on the forum after a busy week, so many great rescues! Can't wait to see Tux!

That quote was very beautiful, thanks Hato.

UP-Date


Tux is doing great! No broken bones. He's standing and walking and sure does squeak a lot.
I did take a picture of him but the picture, doesn't do, the lovely flip on the back of his head justice.
He has become easier to feed and but is slow to pick up seeds on his own although I've seen him do it.
He has been moved into the hospital room so he can observe Sammy and Romey...Poppet and Floozy.
He's one adorable bird.
