Answers: Listen to birdgirl! What you have done is risky on several levels. First, you own in your possession a protected frenzied bird, and you do not have the permit to keep it. Second, if I take in your post, you amputated a bird's wing?! Are you a veterinarian? What ever possessed you to operate on a bird with no license or medical training? That wing could hold been set by a professional, and the bird could enjoy recovered and been set free again. Now, you hold condemed this bird to a life within captivity.

Get it to a licensed wildlife rehabilitator immediately! They will hold to find a facility that has the proper license to hang on to this bird (even a rehabber can not legally maintain an animal once it has any recovered enough to be released, or have permanent injuries that will prevent its release, unless they also possess a license to hang on to certain species for civilizing purposes).
You need to procure this bird to a local wildlife rehab. If you live in the US, it is undemocratic for you to have this bird surrounded by your possession. Take it to a professional where they will know how to provide the correct diet and care it wishes. Look for a rehab near you here:
