A Rosy Release

A male rose-breasted grosbeak was admitted as a patient to VINS in mid-May, suffering a fracture in his right wing. Less than 4 weeks later, this songbird left our care in good health.

The bird -- who had flown into the window of a home -- made a complete recovery here at VINS, thanks to the staff of the Wildlife Services department, and the gentleman who found the bird drove him two hours south to get to us. Good luck, grosbeak!


  1. Thank you all for saving this fellow

  2. ...yeah! Loved seeing him fly out of the tub and back into nature! :-)
