Peacock with a Ulna fracture
Peacock with a Ulna fracture

A peacock was brought in after it was injured due to some blunt force trauma. The ulna was fractured but the radius was intact somehow. Our avian expert Dr. Shashikant Yadav performed a routine intramedullary pinning to set the fracture, allowing the bone to fuse properly.

For us, now at Jivdaya we can say that even intramedullary pinning in birds, has almost become routine because our vets end up performing such surgeries every few days. We receive a lot of orthopedic cases throughout the month, from fractures due to accidents, fan injuries, human conflict and many more. Yet each orthopedic case is a big deal for us and each case is different in its own way. We win some and we lose some. The recovery time may take longer in a few due to other complications in the injury or some may heal surprisingly well. Nature keeps on constantly challenging us.

This peacock is doing well and is under recovery in the Aviary.

 

 

Thank you donors for your trust in us!

Comb duck is one of the world's more distinctive and widespread tropical ducks. The Comb Duck is large and very distinctive, and is unmistakable within the Neotropics.  It can often be seen flying over water, and is eye-catching and distinctive, with its broad wings and striking black-and-white plumage, especially when seen against a background of green vegetation.  Comb Ducks can also often be seen grazing on small fish and invertebrates by swimming slowly and dabbling on the surface.  Comb Ducks are sexually dimorphic: the male is larger than the female and has a large, black, oblong crest above the bill.  The Comb Duck is the only member of its genus. A male Comb duck was rescued by Jivdaya Charitable Trust from Indu Group Gujrat (Sabarmati) on 16th August 2019. After examination and X-ray, our Vet found that the comb duck had a minor fracture in his right wing. After diagnosed our vets done pinning surgery now the bird is under observation and recovery in the treatment room, regular bandaging and physiotherapy given to the bird for healing. Hoping its’ early recovery and release in wild habitat.

Peafowls, also known as peacocks or peahens are one of the most beautiful birds in the world. They bring a riot of beauty and colors along and dance in good times. They are indeed a delight to watch and certainly a synonym of grace. However, they have been left out to dry by us. Recently, Gitaben Rambhiya Trust rescued one such beguiling peafowl at Victoria Garden, Lal Darwaja, Ahmedabad. The peafowl was in such a sorry state for it had a damaged limb. The team of Jeev-daya immediately treated the bird and properly fed it for its speedy recovery. The beauty was kept in an aviary for physiotherapy and was given regular treatment and care. Finally, with the permission of Forest Department, our trust released the fully recovered bird at the same location. It is indeed a shame on humanity for letting one of god's own creations go through such an agonizing phase in life.

Species of the Week : Common Hawk-cuckoo

This medium sized bird falls in the cuckoo family, but the plumage resembles that of a Shikra. It is mainly an arboreal bird (spends most of the time in the trees) and has typical perching feet, with two toes facing forward and two facing backward. 
The common hawk-cuckoo also mimics the shikra's flight pattern, often confusing bird-watchers, but the key identifying points are the legs and the beak. The legs are much shorter and closer to the body, whereas the shikra has long legs. The beak is also longer and pointed when compared to a shikra. The cuckoo-hawk also has a very prominent yellow eye ring. 
Its main diet is insects and fruits from certain trees.

This cuckoo-hawk was brought in very weak and dehydrated. It took a week of treatment, feeding and exercise before the bird regained its strength and was fit for release.

 

We Thanks all Donors for their help in terms of Donation to save and conserve Such Species.
