Clinic staff cleaned off the soot on the feathers, so the bird could not ingest or inhale it. Broken feathers were replaced with ones that had been salvaged from previous patients, and it was test flown to make sure there were no other concerns.
Dr. Dana Franzen-Klein, who rescued the bird, released it near the site it was recovered.
Here is a video of the release
