Cause of Admission

Called by Kiva for an American Kestrel on the ground at an office building in Marion for several hours…seemed to have trouble flying.  She contained the kestrel, met her in Warren to pick up the active little guy. Appears to be young, healthy but thin. Triage by Gigi Stewart. Everything looked good on the bird. No injuries found. A bit dehydrated, so gave fluids.The bird is a juvenile and hasn't learned how to take care of itself.
