A Little Christmas Cheer
Happy Holidays! This brightly colored fellow came into Wildlife Services on December 17 after being found on the Middlebury College campus, unable to fly. We found that his right wing was drooping and missing feathers, which made us suspect that a cat had done the damage. He has undergone treatment to prevent infection caused by cat bite and is wearing a bandage to stabilize the injured wing. When his wing heals, we'll test his flight to see if he's ready to return to the wild.
