Wild bird hospital, 21.6.17

Cleaning out the aviaries is fun when a pigeon sits on your shoulder!

I scrubbed the floors and changed the waters- it is especially important in this hot weather to prevent dehydration.

A young starling had been attacked by a cat and was found underweight and dehydrated. Mixing salt and sugar in water creates a rehydration fluid for the admitted patients.
