UPDATE: 08/31/2020 This hawk was released back to where it was found today

A mass text went out Monday morning to collect a bird that had been found and confined in Goshen Indiana. I must have had the fastest thumbs texting back that I can leave in 10 minutes. Turns out the route to Goshen was plagued with detours and GPS issues but I located the correct address 1.5 hours later. The bird, an adult Red Tail Hawk, was confined in a cool dark room. He appeared to have injuries to one leg and one wing.

 

It took much less time to get him to ICU than it had to pick him up yet he remained pretty calm. The afternoon crew would be there to start their work shortly so I left the information card and proceeded home.

07/30/2020 This bird came to us very lethargic. Our initial exam revealed no injuries that could be found. We are treating this adult hawk with medication for possible pain and feeding   it

08/03/2020 Treatment continues for this bird

08/08/2020 This bird has been moved to our treatment facility. It will start creance training. This allows us to determine if a birds flight is appropriate and if its ready to be released
