The good people at the California Wildlife Center (CWC) came to the rescue of a mockingbird with a foot condition that made it difficult for the poor thing to walk around, perch or grasp objects. The birdie had an unknown injury that caused her feet to the knuckle, something that is a common problem in young birds.

The rescuers made something that appears like tiny snowshoes. The design made sure the feet of the bird was back to the proper position and feet can heal. Before that the bird needed to stand on the tops of her toes regularly, which was only causing extra injury. ‘It usually takes a week or two of wearing the snowshoes before their feet are back to typical.”– Duane Tom from CWC told The Dodo.
The resources confirm that the snowshoe operation has actually been a success. The birdie is getting ready to go back to the wild and delight us with her lullabies. Hooray!
