I also have a listing for a rehabilitator in Oak Harbor. Does anyone know anything about them and if they are still in operation?

That was pretty much the advice I got, all around, when I asked a
similar question on Tweeters -- keep the bird in a quiet, dark place
for a couple of hours so it can recover from the shock and so
hemorrhaging has a chance to subside.
Here are the rescue centers I was referred to, but I released the
bird before getting to that point. I'm on the eastside, so may not
have kept references to places closer to you.
Good luck and thanks for caring about the thrush.
