Rehabilitation of Indian Thick Knee Bird

INDIAN THICK KNEE( BURHINUS INDICUS) :

The Indian stone-curlew or Indian thick-knee (Burhinus indicus) is a species of bird in the family Burhinidae.

This species is found in the plains of India, Pakistan, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

They have large eyes and are brown with streaks and pale marks making it hard to spot against the background of soils and rocks.

Mostly active in the dark, they produce calls similar to the true curlews, giving them their names.

Their diet mainly consists of insects, worms and small reptiles and occasionally some seeds.

Our organisation received such a rare bird in bad condition that was brought to us by a family who had protected it from a deserted area  where it was lost and was trying hard to get  back to its habitat.

After taking it home, they found the bird  in pain. Out of compassion they tried some home-remedies, unknowingly and un-intentionally that the bird they were handling was a rare wild bird almost in endangered list.

This poor bird was then brought in with a wing injury in the right wing to our hospital.

Yet sadly there was  not much we could  do for its right wing to be normal as It was brought in very late after being kept at home for 2 weeks.

This time lapse  gave the injury time to heal wrongly and allowed the wing to nearly fuse.

We  still tried with physiotherapy to exercise the wing and loosen the muscle.

Luckily with the hardwork of our Vets and other Aviary staff  the thick-knee is now roaming free in our  Aviary section recovering body and wing strength. 

We kindly requested the public and also have started creating awareness through interactions, emails, talks ,  to please hand over such birds on time and allow us a chance to heal them properly.

Once the thick-knee recovers completely it would be  released back to the wild with help of Forest officials.

Our awareness programs and posts on social media have helped us to  make people understand the significance of this species and also conveyed local community to not  try self medicating and feeding wild birds at home.

It will only end up being disastrous for these injured rare wild birds.

And fortunately people seem to have understood the consequences of treating or keeping such birds at home and not bringing them to our hospital.

We are grateful to all our supporters, well-wishers, donors, patrons and local public to help us in our mission of wildlife conservation and saving the habitats by rehabilitating their natural inhabitants.

We kindly request you to keep up with your extraordinary deed through generous donations to our organisation so that we can carry on with our mission of saving and relocating wildlife.
