Down the Hatch

VINS interns Calah Beckwith (left) and Lauren DiBiccari tend to a robin.
This young American robin took a wrong turn somewhere and ended up under a car at a local car dealership. We believe the robin struck a window or building, sustaining damage to his central nervous system resulting in a lack of leg use. See our video of the bird receiving care.


Currently, the robin is receiving medication and is being tube-fed three times a day, as he is too unstable to eat on his own. While the going is tough for this songbird right now, we have high hopes he'll return to the wild a healthy bird.
