    She'll be fine. Some birds fake a broke wing so youll be more interested in her than her eggs..This could not be the case.
    Probably the best thing to do is to leave her alone.

    Do you have a local chapter of the Audubon Society? If so, they can help. Try the state fish and game department, too. I know in Portland there are a number of agencies that deal with injured birds. If you can, have an experienced person come handle it.

    call your vet or animal control something. i recently found a bird a cat was chasing after who's wing and leg were open. i called the vet and walked over there and unfortunatly she had too much blood loss and they had to put her down. they did it for free!!

    Call your local zoo. My husband works with a man who volunteers for the zoo to help mend wild birds back to health and release back to the wild. My husband and this guy are aircraft mechanics and this guy brings the birds to work with him so he can give them meds when they need them.

    Call the DNR they can handle it and get it to rehab if needed. Regular vets cannot treat wildlife unless they have a special permit. Emerg treatment can be done but anything further needs to got to a licensed rehabber plus most vet clinics aren't set up to take care of wildlife.

    Fortunately we have a wildlife center near by..I've taken a baby crow, a blue jay and Hiccups the baby possum there.
    Herons are big big birdies...I flushed a green heron once at Pond Meadow Park and it wasn't nearly as big as an Egret or a Great Blue...
