Talking Look What I Rescued!!!

While biking yesterday we came upon an injured Osprey!
After a million calls & law enforcement unable to help, we found a rehabber/rescue lady that said she would take it in if we made the hour drive to her. Short story - an Osprey had his first car ride!
She said he was severely malnourished and she would begin tube feeding that evening. Hope the little guy makes it. I can't believe I petted an Osprey!!! It's my hubby holding it safely with gloves in the pictures.

Nice work! So glad you were able to find someone knowledgeable to help! And thanks for the pictures.

Years ago, I rescued a juvenile barred owl with a snake latched onto it's wing. The snake was unconscious from all the flailing around the owl had done. When we were able to confine the owl, the snake came to and dropped off. Both critters lived!

Update on the Osprey- doing well. Moved to a flight cage with other Ospreys. Eating solid fish on it's own. High probability of a safe release back into the wild. Full recovery imminent! WOOT WOOT HAPPY DANCE! ☺️
