Cause of Admission

Received a text about a bird down near a chimney in Monroeville. Caller stated it had been there not moving for a few hours. Suz and I drove over and picked it up from an extremely friendly gentleman. He indicated it just did not want to fly. We gave the caller our brochures and told him how to check out the status of this little ESOW on line. He knew all about us and was part of an organization supporting nature that was in the process of folding and they were looking for an organizaition or so to disperse there remaining funds to. He indicated we were high on that list. He also indicated that they had seen a nesting pair in their woods and would like to have the bird released back in their area.   We took the bird to ICU where Nicole triaged it. There were no apparent injuries and it was treated as a possible head trauma, I believe.   As always we want these guys to recuperate and return to the wild. Heres hoping for the best for you little guy.   Suz Hansen / Bill Oberg 12/14/2020 currently there are no obvious injuries. We continue to keep it quiet and under observation. We  are treating it for possible pain
