BE 12-32 from Kodiak

BE 12-32 came from Kodiak on Saturday in pretty rough shape. It was very dehydrated, signs of being on the ground for a while and started vomiting green slime during intake exam. He was given fluids, but not much more we could do until it was a little more stable. When it was placed in a mew, it was a little unstable, but settled down after a bit.
On Sunday afternoon, Karen examined the bird again and gave it fluids. She also gave it some red meat and salmon by tong and it took it with a little help and kept it down. Karen and Sharon then cleaned up its beak and nasty feet. He was also treated for feather lice.
This guy has a long road to recovery, but at least it's closer to being stable to be treated.
