This Red-tailed Hawk was admitted to Teton Raptor Center due to a broken radius and ulna in the right wing. The fracture was very old when the bird was found and brought in to the clinic so surgery was not an option for this bird. The bird underwent physical therapy to see if the wing can regain normal function but unfortunately the wing will forever remain abnormal. As a result, this bird is going to be placed at a raptor education facility where she will serve as an animal ambassador for her species!
Update: This hawk has found a new home at the Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium in Springfield, Missouri. She will move to her new home in Missouri when the appropriate paperwork and tests have been completed! Until then she is in training to be handled on the glove.
