having a bit of a guess that might make it a bit more difficult. My guess is
that at this age it might still be familiar with eating insects, as the likely
food that foster parents would bring it, rather than fruit. Although it might
have already made the transition to fruit or started it. It may be even more
injured than outwards signs would suggest. I'd suggest the RSPCA would have
resources or contacts to asses and / or advise. (Years ago the Wildlife
Foundation may have been the group to contact.)
A friend drew my attention to a Koel that had been
attacked by a cat y'day. It couldnt't fly amd seems to have an injured
It's a juvenile, only recently fledged I would
guess as it still has a noticeable gape.
With mixed feeling I picked it up and brought it
home. We managed to feed it some mushed up Apricot using a syringe but it
hasn't eaten a lot and now seems to be having a hard time. It can't
stand-although it grisp a perch, and lays with one wing
I know many people have strong feelings about not
interfering with nature etc. but having intervened, what is the best thing we
can do for the bird?
