As many of our avian patients can stress very easily in captivity, imping (the process of transplanting feathers from a donor wing onto a damaged bird) has become quite a common procedure here.
This crow was brought into the centre after being found in a Larsen trap. Whilst the trap itself was perfectly legal, the bird was in poor condition and had clipped feathers on one wing – a violation of animal welfare laws.
Luckily, Maru was able to repair the damaged wing using feathers from a donor wing and the crow was soon able to take the skies once more!
