Butcher Bird

"He is perfectly healthy," said the lady,"Eating and drinking well and running around the yard eating bugs. Oh yeah, and he can't fly because his wing is broken. I suppose I should have taken him to the vet after I hit him with the car two weeks ago, but I thought the wing would get better after the bleeding stopped. He looks a bit thin and I thought there might be something wrong. Can you look after him?"

I euthanased a butcher bird. I should have done it while she was here, so she could watch.
