Yesterday my wife found this flightless buzzard under a currant bush.

Image

While I went in to call an ornithologist, the Buzzard has jumped on a stub. So he was ready for collection. :cool:

Image

Image

Mr. Welleck arrived just 15 minutes later.

He drove directly to the veterinary.
Diagnose: Fracture of the left humerus, happened some days ago.
Due to the bad fettle, the buzzard would not survive an instant surgery.
That is why Mr. Wellecke took it home again to feed it up.
The expected date of surgery is on friday. Let us keep the fingers crossed.
I keep you informed.

Ciao
Klaus

Many thanks for your feedback, dear Jude ! :biggrin:

Here is the update.

The Buzzard survived the OP. :biggrin: :thumbsup:

I went to Mr. Wellek to see the Buzzard this afternoon.
It is well so far. After the next three weeks we will see if the fracture has healed.
If yes, Mr. Wellek will start training the Buzzard to return to the wild.

Bad news.
The buzzard was euthanized this morning.
Parts of the fracture has healed, but a big part of the fracture bone was necrotized.
I'm not able to explain all facts in english. Sorry !
Was present while it died. The buzzard was laid to rest in Mr. Welleck's garden.

Terrible day !
