07252016 Cooper's Hawk
Called to New Haven to rescue a hawk that was "sitting down" on a back porch in a fenced in area that usually had dogs in it, but they were kept inside until rescue was complete.
Identified hawk as a cooper's hawk. The hawk still had a lot of down feathers on head and body. It also has new blood feathers growing on both sides of wings where the flight feathers are still developing. Estimated age of hawk is about 6 weeks old. Hawk seemed weak, lethargic, keel a 2-3, and no other injuries present. Gave a total of 30 ml of gateraide which seemed to give the little hawk more energy! Called Dr. Pat Funnel and dropped off the baby cooper's hawk to Pat for further assessment and care.
