Injured Red-Shouldered Hawk

Well, last night after playing music with friends we came home to a distress call on our neighborhood Yahoo! group. Someone had an injured hawk in their driveway.

Paul and I loaded up the dog crate, gloves and a blanket and headed over there. This is who we found. A young Red-Shouldered Hawk with two broken bones in its right wing. The breaks will be pinned at Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue by the fabulous “Dr. Dan” Famini. The bird is strong and we hope to release it back in the neighborhood after rehabilitation.

Thanks again to the neighbors who found this injured bird and cared enough to seek help for it.

We humans are just a small part of a much larger community.
