baby robin when found with broken leg

In early July, Wildlife Watch received a call about a little fledgling with a broken leg. The caller was nearby, so we went over, and it was clear that the little bird was not merely waiting for mom to come to feed him. He was in serious trouble with a broken leg.
We were able to get him to a veterinary hospital that works with Friends of the Feathered and Furry Wildlife Center, one of the premier wildlife rehabilitation facilities near here.
I confess, I didn’t think this little bird had much of a chance of ever having use again of his broken leg.
So, you can imagine our pleasant surprise (I jumped out of my skin with delight) when we received these photos from Missy Runyan of Friends of the Feathered and Furry Wildlife Center, Inc.
He will be released when he’s old enough!
