This Common Murre was brought to us by Caroline Itzler of Brewster. "Murray" as she nicknamed him, was found on Nauset Beach. The bird came to us very weak, dehydrated, and had a 2-inch laceration over its left thigh. Murray absolutely LOVES his fish, and his swim time in the therapy pools. We were having trouble getting the wound to heal, as he was constantly trying to preen and waterproof the area. So we asked Dr. Stone at Eastham Veterinary Hospital to suture the wound and pull the surrounding feather. Murray has to be dry-docked for several days, but he is in great spirits. He is doing well and we hope for a swift recovery. Thank you Caroline and Dr. Stone!
