Broad-winged Hawk #16-2175

On October 6, the vet staff began physical therapy and laser therapy (performed every other day) on the left wing of Broad-winged Hawk #16-2175. The hawk has consistently reach 80-85% extension in the left wing, however showed signs of discomfort during the most recent session of physical therapy.

The vet staff will monitor the progress of the hawk’s wing injury, and repeat radiographs are scheduled for late October to assess healing of the left metacarpal bone.
