California Wildlife Center recently rescued a Northern Mockingbird whose feet were knuckling, meaning she was unable to open her feet to stand or perch. This was causing the bird to have to stand on the tops of her toes which were curled under and causing her additional injury. CWC veterinary staff created "snowshoes" for the mockingbird to retrain her feet to open and allow the injuries to her toes to heal. The treatment was successful and the bird is now snowshoe-free and on the road to full recovery!
