This beautiful Baltimore oriole lay helpless in the middle of a highway in Stouffville. Luckily, Cindy was passing through when she saw his bright orange feathers. She approached the poor bird and attempted to move him off the road, but when she picked him up he started crying out. The oriole was clearly stressed, and he desperately needed help so she immediately brought him to TWC.
Medical staff suspected this little bird had been struck by a car, since he was stunned and couldn’t balance properly as he stood. He has been started on treatment and put on cage rest, and is recovering from soft tissue injuries – watch as he takes his medication! Medical staff have high hopes this gorgeous little bird will be flying back in the wild soon. #BaltimoreOriole #wildliferehabilitation
