Swainson's Hawk

This female Swainson's Hawk was found unable to fly. X-rays did not reveal any physical injuries, but a blood test did show evidence of lead in her blood. She also has a small laceration on her chest. With some fluids, food, and rest, we are hopeful that she will soon return to the wild!

Date Admitted: 6.17.17

Location Found: Star Valley Ranch, WY

Update: Sutures and regular bandage changes have greatly improved the condition of her chest wound. Additionally, her most recent blood-lead level came back as low.
