One fledgling in a group of Robins seemed to have some difficulty walking. I first saw it in sitting position on my neighbours roof. I took a few photos of the Robins and did not notice the appearance of the feet of the fledgling until I viewed the images on my computer.

I been trying to rehabilitate a robin its learning to fly, but it’s feet are abnormal, it can hop. Will it be OK if I can keep the stray cats away?

Holly Grant, Project Assistant says:

Hi Regina, Please contact a federally certified wildlife rehabilitator, who will have the federal permits that are required by law in order to care for wild birds.

Winner if it’s yet another casualty of lawn pesticides/herbicides?
