Admission Date
Rescue Location
Northern Indiana
Cause of Admission

This hawk was found down on the ground by a concerned citizen.  He was transported to our treatment and recovery unit where he was found to have flat flies and minor abrasions on his feet.  Upon further examination we thought that we could feel something abnormal in his shoulder.  He was taken in for radiographs on November 19th and they revealed that everything was normal in the shoulder.  He was a bit thin so we decided to keep him awhile to make sure that he was eating on his own and was gaining weight.  We will never know what happened that caused him to be down on the ground.
