The fledgling Blue Jay I mentioned in the previous post was brought to Dr. Davis yesterday. We evaluated his condition and he has a fractured humerus. We may be able to set it, but we cannot pin it. Sadly, this rambunctious teen is still begging his parents for food, but is too wild to accept it from me. I have to force feed him and it is extremely stressful on him. I'll give him another day to see if he settles down enough to realize that I am not going to hurt him & if he starts accepting food from me or he starts eating on his own. If he does neither, I will have to choose euthanasia - not my choice alternative.
