i rescued this woodpecker in my yard yesterday. he has a broken wing and broken beak. i was going to leave him be.. he was in the yard on saturday and we tried to give him a little hiding place to rest. the next morning he was still there.. so i decided to put him in a cage. today i am going to see if i can find a vet or someone who wants to take him. if not i'll try to fix the wing myself (instructions on the internet). he is still alive this morning. i gave him bread, almonds and berries to eat. gonna try to go get him some bird food today. i think he might still be a baby..since he is rather small. i am calling him george. any advice appreciated!
