Mom bird leg broke and hurt wing

Asked July 20, 2019, 10:50 AM EDT

I just had to rescues mom or dad from nest it’s leg was caught in its nest and hanging out of the nest just dangling. I got it unattached but leg is broken. Then it try to fly away but my dog it and I got it away immediately but now looks like the wing is broke. I went and put it away from the dogs but it won’t fly now. Is there anything I can do? Will the other parent come back to feed babies?

Dear MadisonCo, Thank you for writing to Extension with your Natural Resource questions. I am sorry that we haven’t responded sooner. This is the first opportunity I have had to write after getting the question this week. Being this late I am assuming the bird is already dead. Please call my cell and we can talk. Blessings. - Andy
