lol alix, pulled a muscle?
hb, is the little bird wearing sweats and a headband, carrying a tiny tennis racket, maybe?
i'm sorry alix, that one cracked me up.
hb, is the bird quietly resting on it's back, feet in the air, and a tiny bucket overtunred next to it??
if the bird is holding one wing at a strange angle, the odds are that the wing is broken in some way, or dislocated. it could just be some broken feathers causing it to be unable to fold back neatly, or a bone could be broken.
the towel thing will work, but you'll risk injuring the bird further.
btw, i hope you had a good thick pillow case on the pillow. after a big meal, birds generally don't hold anything in too long, if you get my drift.
