Hurt Baby Hawk...And a Happy Ending


SOUTH VALLEY BIKE TRAIL--This baby red-tailed hawk lay in the diversion channel next to the bike trail. It was hurt and flopped away. It was unable to fly because of a broken wing. How this little raptor came to such grief is unknown, but overhead are several high-power electrical lines.

j_m- I'm pretty sure that's a kestrel, previously known as a chicken hawk. They're pastel beauties. mjh
