Red-Tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis)

“Beaker” was found injured and lost a portion of the top part of her beak. She was transported to Ironside Bird Rescue and the very capable hands of Susan, who treated her and nursed her back to health. Due to her age at the time of the injury, I worked with Beaker throughout the winter and early spring to rebuild the strength needed to survive once again in the wild. When she was flying well and her hunting abilities we up to par, Beaker was released… I hope that she does not suffer the same fate as before and is happily soaring the thermals somewhere over the open prairies.
