Exclamation I've found a wounded bird outside...

I've found a Robin that I'm assuming has been wounded. He's perched on an upside-down lawn chair outside my house, and when approached doesn't move an inch, it only turns it's head. This seems odd to me because if it had broken wings I figure it would still walk away.
I figure it has been there for a while as well, since I've found 2 sets of droppings right below where it is standing.

Hello BartusCompater and a warm welcome to you from those of us on staff here at BirdForum

It certainly sounds like something is wrong with the bird. I'm listing a link for Wildlife Rehabbers in your state. Just scroll down til you get to Washington. Perhaps a phone call to one of them might help you with some suggestions as to what might be wrong with the poor bird. Good luck and please keep us posted.
