Potential car strike

We received a call on 9/6/18 about a red-tailed hawk with obvious injuries on the side of the road in Beaverdam, OH.  The person who found the bird graciously offered to bring it to ICU, even though it was an hour drive to the facility. 

Upon examination, it was discovered that the bird had probably been hit by a car.  It had active bleeding from its ear and right eyelid.  Antibiotics were given for pain and potential infection.  He was kept in ICU until 10/13, started creance flying on 11/11, and was eventually released on 12/29/18!

How You Can Help

It's important to rescue, rehab, and share these birds with the community, and we thank our donors and volunteers for making it possible.
