4 Red-tailed Hawks and a Swainson’s Hawk

This past week brought two Red-tailed Hawks with severed wings, one with an advanced case of avian pox and a fourth hawk that was extremely emaciated. The emaciated hawk is very gradually improving, although her condition is still guarded. She has an eye injury that suggests she may have had a head injury that prevented her from flying, resulting in her emaciation.The third eyelid on her left eye does note retract completely, a condition called Horner’s Syndrome.

A Swainson’s Hawk was found near Haines, OR. It appears to have been electrocuted. We are treating her condition, but the prognosis is guarded.
