Red Tail Hawk Hit By Car Survives

In Mid December, Susan and Martin were called to check on a Red Tail Hawk near a busy road. The hawk had been struck by a car. With the help of the man who called, they located the Red Tail Hawk and Martin was able to scoop the hawk up.

Back at the rescue center, Martin examined the Hawk and found no broken bones. The Hawk was put in a chamber to recover. Five days later, after frequent checks and examinations, Martin determined the hawk was ready to return to the wild where she belongs.

One Great Horned Owl’s Lucky Break

Martin and Susan were called out to check on a Great Horned Owl in someone’s backyard. Upon arrival, Martin caught the injured owl and did a quick exam. The owl had a broken wing, but fortunately, one that could heal with a little time. After some time at our rescue center, this Owl was released back to the wild.

One Hawk, Three Releases

After a month an half stay, a healthy Ferruginous Hawk was released back into the wild and then released back into the wild and then released back into the wild.

This Hawk had been stuck in a barbed wire fence, a barb caught deeply in her wing. She was found hanging from the fence. When she arrived, her wing drooped. Signs of the damage can still be seen, however, she healed up well and is flying good.

Martin also included some discussion about the differences between a Harris Hawk and a Ferruginous Hawk.

Eight Months & Ten New Tail Feathers Later…

This hawk arrived in November of last year. The hawk had damage to primary feathers of one wing and was also missing 10 of 12 tail feathers. Someone ripped them out.

The hawk stayed with us for eight months until the feathers grew back.
