Some days, I love my job.

Look what came in tonight. Someone found him on the side of the road. (Pardon the lighting, I didn't want to use flash and freak him out even more)

We're not sure yet. They've consulted with our avian veterinarian and a local raptor preserve. He may have been hit by a car while trying to get some prey.

Aren't hawks just the most amazing things? I remember the first one I saw - I stood there for a few seconds then said "Can I touch?"

He looks a bit shock-y doesn't he?

I've rehabbed hawks - don't remember now how many - along with some owls. They're both fascinating creatures.

BTW, sometimes it makes for a bit easier handling if you put wads of gauze in their feet and wrap vetwrap around it. You can be sure that you won't accidentally get one of those claws in you that way! (Just for when you're working with them or x-raying - duh)

Love the pix - you keep that camera in your hip pocket don't you??
