Hello. I am a small animal Veterinarin that has work with numerous birds that have suffered trauma. Unfortunately, birds can be very fragile. When they suffer an impact they can damage their spine, suffer head injuries or damage the nerves which would allow for normal movement. With supportive care - keeping them warm (they have a higher normal body temperature than we do), keeping them fed and hydrated - some can recover. Typically though the trauma is too great or the stress of being handled (since they aren't domesticated) is too much for them. Your local Veterinarin can help you assess if the trauma is severe enough to warrant humane euthanasia to minimize the birds stress and discomfort. I hope this is helpful for you.
