It is life - do not take its swings too close to your heart! The time still has been too short for the bird to recover to her full strength. You are doing the best of what can be done!!!!I am not sure the lady from Idiana will help more than you do. Just give it a bit more time if you can. Tissue injuries (muscles and especially bones) take several weeks to heal. As much as you wish her to fly strong - she may not until about March 22. Keeping her at rest, moving as little as possible, sleeping as long as possible will help.Thank you all. It looks like one lady in Indiana (fifteen minutes away) is going to be able to come get her. I have been so disappointed with the lack of viable resources so far that I am almost hesitant to say it until she gets here!
But this bird still cannot make noises, stand on a perches, or fly. She CAN stand on a low perch with one leg. I tossed her onto t he couch again and she just went plop. However I had her out "foraging" in my living room yesterday and she tried to fly but careened into the wall! It looked so unnatural and nearly gave me a heart attack but she seems fine. I'm afraid to let her out now. Lol
