Update, 10:09 a.m.: Animal Rescue League on its way.
At 8:42 a.m., butterh urgently tweeted from his Dorchester apartment:
Bird in my apt. Live adult, injured, ARL not open - What do I do?! We're freaking each other out. Need help.
Cyn Donnelly replied:
A towel or light blanket over the bird will let you pick it up and put it in a box or bin until someone can get it.
