Sharp Shinned Hawk

This Sharp Shinned Hawk is a local bird that was found in Teton Village after it collided with a window. The bird was examined, and found to have general body/head trauma as well as a fractured coracoid with a possibly luxated humerus. If the shoulder turns out to be dislocated, the birds prognosis is not very bright. As of now, treatment includes 3 weeks cage rest with a body wrap to immobilize the shoulder and scapula.

Update: Bird is perching and has been moved to an ICU chamber!
