The hawk that I have been caring for, for over 21 years now, has not been faring well. She has lost some of her appetite and has lost weight. She developed an infection of some kind and now needs medicine daily. We are all keeping a close eye on her, and she's in good hands.
Ironically, my daughter is doing an Internship at a Raptor Rehab center and at a Wildlife Discovery Center, and has just held her first Hawk! Since then she's handled owls and other birds, too. Yes, I'm proud. That's my girl.
