Little injured gnatcatcher stopped by today

28 Sep

A little blue-grey gnatcatcher was brought in for triage on her way to Bush Wildlife Center with an injured wing from a cat. We cleaned her wound, started her on antibiotics (predator attack victims need very early antibiotic treatment or else could die within hours or a day), and she shortly sunk her beak into some juicy mealworms (but not tender enough apparently!).
