He is much better after only two full days of good food. He is strong enough to get up onto his perch and is taking the boneless/skinless pieces of quail that I hand him with forceps. This afternoon I may give him the quail carcass to pick on by himself to see if he is strong enough for that.
UPDATE: The xrays showed a fractured radius/ulna in his right wing near the elbow. Because of his weakened state the surgery to repair the breaks will have to wait until at least the beginning of next week. In the meantime he is now ripping and tearing his own food off the bones of quail and small mice.
