Celebrating Another Release!

On 5/18/20, Bill and Sue found this nesting female redtail perching on a pile of logs, after George called Soaring' Hawk about her being on the ground for awhile. After a challenging rescue, Bill and Sue took her to ICU for evaluation.

There was no obvious injury to this female hawk, but after an exam and an xray by our vet, it was discovered that she had been shot twice by a pellet gun. She was treated for pain and observed to see if she passed the pellets. The DNR was been notified and will investigate.

In early June, she was moved to our rehabilitation facility to begin flight training, and on July 24, 2020, she went back home.
