Cause of Admission: 
Orphaned
UPDATE: 07182020 All six of our juvenile American Kestrels were released today

Got a call to pick up a “baby hawk” in southwest Allen county. It turned out to be a flegdling male Kestrel. He was found in a field, unable to fly. Super nice people that called put him in a horse trough and had him wrapped in a towel.

 

We took him into ICU for triage where he became very feisty and tenacious. There is apparently nothing that was found wrong with him. Just got himself somewhere he shouldn’t ought to been!

 

As always we hope and pray that all our rescues heal and can be released. We pray for you little guy.
