A homeowner witnessed a small hawk hit the house window (likely was chasing a hopeful meal) and the hawk did not fly away. Homeowner took to a veterinary clinic who knew to call SOAR volunteer Deb! The female sharp-shinned hawk could be just dazed, or could have injuries that are not so obvious. We are going to get her in the flight pen for assessment.
