Red-tailed Hawk

This male Red-tailed Hawk cannot be released because when was an inexperienced hunter in the wild he was injured by a squirrel that refused to be his next meal. The squirrel bit his leg so badly that it caused permanent tendon damage in his leg which prevents him from closing his talons properly, making it impossible for him to hunt successfully. Talon was rescued by a falconer when he was found starving. After being trapped and treated for his injuries he was sent to Hawk Creek to join our flight team.
