Red-shouldered Hawk #17-1097

On May 23, a Red-shouldered Hawk baby was transferred to the Center from a small animal hospital after the young bird was separated from its parents.

Upon completion of a physical exam, an eye exam, and radiographs, the veterinary staff determined that hawk #17-1097 was healthy. Surprisingly, the baby bird tested positive for lead; the levels are low enough that it should not affect the bird’s prognosis or recovery.
