An osprey (17-137) arrived at CROW from J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge on January 21, 2017 after it was found in the water unable to fly. The osprey had a traumatic injury to the left foot with severe swelling and is receiving supportive care and pain management. Additional treatment will be based on pending test results.
