802.359.5000 | WILD BIRD REHAB: x510
VINS Wildlife Services Dept received a mystery bird earlier this month. When the patient arrived, we knew right away that it was a baby raptor – it had a sharp curved tip to its beak, and very sharp talons – but what species of raptor?? Here in our rehab dept, we feel like we’ve seen it all, but sometimes we can still get stumped. This baby raptor was no “wee” baby – it was the size of a small chicken, but had no feathers, just white fluff. This white fluff indicated to us that it was still very young and helpless.
