This juvenile Swainson's Hawk was found on the side of the road by Idaho Fish and Game shortly after it was struck by the car. Luckily we were able to get the bird to TRC the same day! After spending a week in Oxygen, giving the bird time to stabilize from its internal trauma, the bird went had surgery to get its humerus fracture pinned. Treatment now includes a 4-6 weeks of cage rest for the bone to heal, antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory medication.
