This hatch year Swainson's Hawk was found unable to stand or fly. The bird does not have any broken bones in its legs, spine, or pelvis but did have some swelling and bruising throughout it's body. We are hopeful that with anti-inflammatory meds and cage rest the bird will start to stand soon!
Update: This hawk is in a mew and starting to get more mobile but is still unable to stand on it's own all the time. We are consulting with our veterinarians for different medications we can try.
