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

  Hi Linda,

  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.
