Patient of the Week: Ring-neck Duck

This waterfowl came to Tucson Wildlife Center after being found near the Pima County Wastewater Plant. He was reported to have potentially been attacked by an avian predator. On arrival, he was diagnosed with a fracture to his right clavicle. His first few days were tricky as he learned how to feed himself in captivity. He was monitored closely and given the supportive care and paid medications he required. Happily, he has turned around tremendously in recent days. He has begun eating all of his food without assistance and is becoming more alert. As it stands now, our staff are expecting a full recovery and excited to see this cute duck continue to progress as he heals!
