Update on the captured WSP fledgling - June 8th, 2014

This just in: WINORR (Wildlife in Need of Rescue and Rehabilitation) has updated their Facebook page with an update on the Washington Square Park fledgling taken into their care yesterday. All seems well!
"Next the Washington Square Park fledgling we received yesterday appears healthy . He will be x rayed tomorrow just to be safe while we have him but hes got a huge appetite as well as an attitude .Hes very mouthy and footy as far as redtails go. There is 1 issue presently he has lost 2 flight feathers somehow. Possibly when he entered the window ? they broke or he chewed them off as will sometimes occur if they are badly bent or broken and painfull weve seen birds chew them off . Now there is just about an inch stub of a shaft where the feather used to be. Obviously wed prefer him to have all his feathers intact. If all is well with him we will return him to a tree in the park this week and have no doubt his family will accept him like he never left once he cries for food. Hell have a little catching up to do with his sibling from his short time in captivity but no damage done. Thank you to everyone for your well wishes and thoughts. This is just the first week of many that young city raptors will be falling from the sky that people will encounter ."
A big thanks to the Horvaths for their dedication to wildlife. Please take a moment, if you wish, to send them a donation as they mainly rely on funding from the public for their efforts. Donations can be sent to them at:
