Creative problem solving helps bird stay upright

flicker

This northern flicker hit a window and has head trauma. Because of this, his sense of balance is off, and he keeps flipping over onto his back, where he feels quite distressed as this is not a natural position for a bird.

So we built him this little body wrap to keep him in an upright position while his brain swelling goes down. He looks like a little flicker boat!
