Update on SUPER Bird







This past Wednesday, April 6th 2016, I posted information about Super, the name of the Northern Flicker featured in the pictures above.

I have since received word re Super’s prognosis via email and have posted a copy of it below:



“Hello Patricia,
Super is holding one wing higher than the other which is usually the sign of a broken coracoid. I have not been able to get an x-ray as the machine was not available yesterday or today. An xray is not essential, but it would be nice to have. In any regard it would definitely be a couple of weeks to see how the bone mends. We’ll also be waiting to see how he comes out of the concussion.”

Upon my receiving this email, I went to The WBF (a bird rehab facility located in Manhattan’s UWS) to visit Super. I was so glad to see him and very thankful that the workers who were there allowed me to take a few photographs of him (which can be seen above) and I also took one of the information posted on his cage (which can be seen below).

But since he is in a cage and is crouching in the corner, the quality of the images is poor. Be that as it may, these photos can give you a sense of Super’s situation. The mint green color that you see in the images of him is the bandaging that is adhered to his injured wing.
I hope to visit Super again but I don’t want to make a pest of myself at the facility as they are very busy. I’ll try and pray for discernment as to the appropriateness of my visiting my little feathered friend!
