This hatch-year 2018 Cooper’s hawk was found in the town of Onowa on the ground, not wanting to fly. At SOAR, it was determined that this young hawk had no fractures, could use feet and legs, had plenty of feathers, but was thin. Time for a bit of supportive care to get weight back on this youngster and then time in a flight pen, as soon as possible.
