- We have been feeding a mature Red-tailed Hawk the last couple of
days. He/she does not appear to be injured, but may be ill or simply
malnourished. It stays mostly on the ground or low perches and is
pretty mellow about being approached.
This is the second hawk in the last few weeks in Potter Valley with
this behavior, the other having died after a few days of care in
captivity. We hope to keep this guy alive without the trauma of
Any ideas about caring for this bird or other instances of RTH's in
this condition would be helpful.
