Merlin-102730-in-ward-cage-Web This immature male Merlin was found on the ground in Seattle on November 10. He was picked up by Seattle Animal Control and transferred to PAWS Wildlife Center for care.

During the bird’s initial physical examination, a PAWS wildlife rehabilitator discovered that he had suffered a fractured humerus in his right wing. She wrapped the wing to prevent the bird from using it and causing further injury. As of this writing, the Merlin was in stable condition.
