Via volunteer Pam:

Soarin' Hawk received a call from a woman in Columbia City who said she picked up a kestrel in the middle of the street from an apparent car strike.  She gave the kestrel to her neighbor who put him in a box and watched over him until I could pick him up.  He was transported to ICU and appeared to have a broken wing and blood in his mouth.  He will have radiographs and be further assessed.  He is currently very lethargic.
