Red Tailed Hawk Rescue #06072018

Story via Volunteer Louie Lee :

This morning the Soarin' Hawk call taker informed Lana and I of a juvenile hawk, being harassed by song birds and on the ground. Upon our arrival at 923 Cardinal Ct. in Auburn, we were taken to a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk in a spruce tree about two feet off the ground. The bird was aware of it's surroundings and appeared alert. After an observation period the hawk was captured easily. During the initial exam we found the keel to be very narrow (1). Possible fly eggs were noted in the mouth. No other health issues were discovered. The bird was taken to Dr. Funnel at the Pine Valley Vet Clinic and released to her.
