Ginger

Red-shouldered Hawk

Ginger came to us in late summer of 2015 from another raptor rehabilitator in Indiana.  She has a permanent wing injury which causes a permanent wing droop; she cannot fly well enough to be released. Ginger is an exquisitely colored Red-shouldered Hawk; she has a lot of deep red colored feathers.  She is large for a Red-shouldered, so we assumed she was a female.  And then she laid some eggs the spring of 2016, which obviously confirmed it!  If you get the chance to see Stewie and Ginger side by side you will notice the size and color difference in them.  We are happy to have another Red-shouldered Hawk for an education bird and Stewie seems happy to have a roommate!
