Location of Rescue: 
Fort Wayne, IN
Admission Date: 
09/14/2017
Cause of Admission: 
Stuck in chimney
UPDATE: 09/22/2017 - He is doing great: eating well and flying well. He was released today! That is the highlight of what we do!

This poor little guy was caught in a chimney in Fort Wayne!  Luckily this time of year there was no fire going or furnace on!  

Initial examination: Other than being a little dirty, he only had a small abrasion on one side of his beak.  Radiographs did not reveal any fractures.  He will be kept a few days to make sure no problems surface, he eats well and flies well.
