It might help folks to know a bit more. What kind of bird
is it? Starling, sparrow, other songbird, large bird, small
bird? What sort of activity have you seen from the bird that causes
you to conclude it is injured? Is it holding still or hopping
around? Is one wing extended or is it perhaps limping? What part of
the bird seems to be inured?
Most birds recover enough to fly within 24 hours. Can
someone take a box out to the bird and set it into a box, and put the
box in a safe location, with some water and seeds, for a day? If it
doesn't fly by then it would be good to call a licensed
rehabber. There are several in the area, and you can reach them by
calling VINS (Vermont Institute of Natural Science) in Woodstock.
Thanks for posting! I hope the bird makes it.
