Black-headed Grosbeak 10-2365 cat attack victim in ward cage 091610 KM (2)  This young grosbeak was brought to PAWS Wildlife Center on September 12 after he was attacked by a house cat. He suffered multiple puncture wounds, one of which you can see covered by a clear bandage in this photo. He is currently being treated with antibiotics and his wounds are being cleaned regularly to help stave off an infection.

Grosbeaks are migratory, and by the time this bird’s injuries have healed he will have missed his migration window. He will need to be over-wintered at PAWS and released in the spring when others of his kind migrate back into our state.
