This immature Red-shouldered Hawk came to TreeHouse on February 3rd with a wing fracture on the left carpometacarpus near the wrist joint and a fracture involving both the radius and ulna on that same wing. The fractures have healed up but unfortunately the bird no longer has full use of its left wing and cannot fly. You cannot easily tell that there is an injury when the wings are folded in but when the bird extends its wings, it cannot fully extend the left wing.
By its size, we believe this bird is most likely male. It is highly food motivated. I think this young bird could potentially make a good education ambassador with some training.
Please call TreeHouse Wildlife Center at (618) 466-2990 or email me at email@example.com if you are interested in this bird!
