Indian Thick-knee (Burhinus indicus) with a wing injury
By Ratiranjan Mahapatra - Program manager
injured in right wing
This injured bird was brought in with a wing injury in the right wing. After examination and X-ray, our Vet found that it was brought in very late after being kept at home for weeks which gave the injury time to heal wrongly and allowed the wing to nearly fuse. We have still tried with physiotherapy to exercise the wing and loosen the muscle. The thick-knee is now roaming free in the aviary recovering body and wing strength.
We request the public to please hand over such birds on time and allow us a chance to heal them properly and let them be released back to the wild. Please don't try self medicating and feeding wild birds at home. It will only end up being disastrous for the poor bird.
