Vegas, NV 📍 Found outside on the ground near our trash cans. Didn’t move too much until I approached it. Didn’t fly. Doesn’t seem to have any leg injuries. It’s left wing seems a little dodgy.
I have a box prepared with blankets. I will cover the top of the box so that it feels secure. A friend of mine is saying that it’s “disease infested” but I could not just leave it out there with the neighborhood cats. It’s pretty alert. I haven’t seen it drink any water yet.
Please Note: My friend is not a fan of birds. 🙄 — Nor does she live with me. So, this matter is solely my concern. I couldn’t leave this little guy out there with the neighborhood cats prowling.
I know that they are nesting up on my neighbor’s roof under their solar panels. There must be at least 50 of them. The wing on this little guy seems a little off. I don’t want to say that it’s broken, but there’s definitely something going on. The little fella is alert. Doesn’t seem too afraid.
