My bird was attacked by a hawk

My dove spends most days outside on the patio table in his cage. Today a hawk attacked him from outside his cage. He has a gash in his chest but is not bleeding any more. Not sure about his legs and don't want to handle him any more. I have a chance to be a walk-in tomorrow at a bird vet. Most vets don't see birds, and all vets in my area are totally booked. I've called about 10 vets. He's resting on the bottom of the cage; he moved to the corner by himself. He's inside now, and we have covered the cage. He's alert. I hope he will be ok. We've had him many years.
