Rescuing a golden-crowned kinglet
A friend rescued a female golden-crowned kinglet in Chelsea recently. It weighed 5 and half grams. She picked it up from the street as it was in shock. She put into a raspberry box (seen here) with rags and called the vet and then the Animal Medical Center, then the ASPSA. Finally, she ended up finding a federally and state licensed rehabilitator where she took the bird. She called the next day to find out how the bird was. It had probably flown into glass and became injured. The rehabilitator gave it water and half a worm. So far, it is surviving.
