After bringing it inside I found it's wing hanging at an awkward angle. It was broken. I checked for wounds, signs of blood, and found none. To tell you the truth I was glad since I didn't have a penny for the vet. Gently folding the wing into it's body, I applied some tape. I found a spot away from the animals, and presented him with a shallow cup of water and birdseed. Three weeks passed and I took off the tape. Letting him fly around a bit, I was satisfied that he would be able to survive on his own. I had mixed feelings about letting him go."
