This hatch-year Osprey was brought to us from Idaho Falls under unknown circumstances. After taking x-rays the bird was found to have a fractured metatarsal with bruising and swelling in the area. Treatment includes a compressive splint to stabilize the fracture, anti-inflammatory medication, fluids, and pain management.
Update: This bird is in a mew with two other hatch year Osprey. They are keeping one another company, self feeding, and moving around nicely!
