Wood-Duck-102781-in-Stagman-cage,-120310-web On November 24 this Wood Duck was found in the road in Seattle. He had dried blood on his bill and neck, and was unable to fly. He was picked up by a concerned citizen and taken to the Seattle Animal Shelter.

From there, he was transferred to PAWS for care. Our staff examined the duck and found that he was thin and anemic, and he had suffered a fracture to his left scapula (shoulder blade). Most likely he had flown low across the road and had been hit by a car.

He is under veterinary care as his fracture heals and we are hopeful he will make a full recovery.
