Chloe needs your help!


By kasy


I came back from shopping today and noticed I had a visitor in a garden sitting on the chair…
so quickly grabbed a camera and took few pics.

But then I thought to myself – hey, there is something wrong with that bird. It stayed there, didn’t fly away.
It was just jumping there not able to fly…
Few minutes later it was on the grass hiding behind the bike.

I got even closer and took few more pictures.
Looks like on of her wings is damaged – it is hanging loose and she’s not able to fly…

Poor little thing – I feel so so so sorry for it.
Would like to help but don’t know what to do – should I ring someone or take it to the vet?
So if you could help – I would appreciate it a lot.
Chloe (that’s what I called her) needs your help. I already saved her from Masha but there are other cats around….
Thank you in advance
And Chloe says Thanks as well

I have had the same with a young chaffinch, although it dosn't seem to be injured it just sits around in the garden when i approach it does fly a little way. Although its sad and upsetting for us this is nature, and not much we can do.

No I didn't Katarina. She was looking ok, walking around the garden eating insects. I rang the animal rescue organisation and they said give us a ring when you'd be back home. Masha was inside so no danger:) I didn't want to cause more stress. Her wing wasn't badly damaged - so it looks like she recovered and flew away. And I saw a pair of adult magpies behind the fence - they looked like they were 'guarding' someone. I think she's ok now:)

Hmm. I think it is doomed to death, Kasia. But you did what you could. I know people here, who owns this bird rescue station. It is said, that magpie is the most intelligent of birds and their brain:body ratio is just little bit smaller then in humans. If they are in danger or looking for food, they operate in gangs. You missed the chance to save intelligent creature :))
