A call about this HY18 red-tailed hawk came thanks to one of our personal veterinarians! The landowners reported seeing this hawk at the back of their property for a couple days and called this vet clinic for help.

He is very thin and has some bumps and bruises. Not sure if a vehicle collision or just being young and inexperienced got this juvenile down.
