This weeks photo serves as a dual purpose, one to show the woodpecker that Michelle found last week in the back yard. It was flopping around like it had a broken wing, so we captured it and took it to Cheat Lake Veterinary Hospital to see if they could identify the problem and possibly fix him up again.
Michelle called for an update earlier this week and they told her that he had a fractured wing and they have him resting with his wing immobilized so that he can heal. It's going to take a couple of weeks to heal him and then they are going to take him and let him loose once again in our area as this is his habitat to fly free again.
It's our good deed for the month.
