Well, I should probably explain the story now
At 11ish last night, I finished doing everything that needed to be done I went out to tuck the birds away. I had just checked on them 3 hours earlier, just before the light had disappeared to make sure everyone was fine, which they were. When I went out the second time, I found my poor Heidi dead, decapitated, and pulled partially through the wire.
RIP, my little sweetheart
I was horrified and distraught. I packed everyone up tight and set up traps in case the animal who did this came back. I assumed it was a raccoon, judging by the way it was pulled to the wire and decapitated. Oh, how wrong I was. This morning, I went out at the crack of dawn to check the trap and there he was, hissing and snapping his beak at me. I've never seen a bird get nabbed in a ground trap like this, I was shocked! Not sure if his leg is broken, but he's going to a Wildlife Rehab center later this afternoon, and hopefully I won't see him again.
