Nursing one back to health after it took a good knock to the head by flying into my window.

Canon T3i, untouched and too bright on my hand, but it shows the color of the bird well.

Did it make it? I have held so many, and 99% of them are good. As long as they break the bash with their beak they tend to recover. Lovely image.


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

She (or he) seemed fine after about 15 minutes. She flew from my hand a bit shakily down to the grass so I picked her up for another 5 minutes or so and then she seemed fine.

Well done, kudos for taking care of the bird until it recovered.

I have come to the conclusion that the warmth of the hand indeed helps them recover. I do hold them for 15 or more minutes, and give them a sip of water after they seem somewhat adjusted. Nothing better than seeing them fly off on their own juice!~

Wow what a beautiful shot! Sorry to hear about the injury bit I love this photo. The bird looks quite content too!
