An update on our story from yesterday:
The baby at WINORR is doing well today. It has a healthy appetite and is eating a lot. No word yet on a possible release date.
The baby that has thus far eluded rescue was finally spotted today in the park. It flew around a bit, then sat for a few hours in a tree near Turtle Pond.
It was awake and alert all afternoon, which is great news, although it still wasn’t very active. It might be coming of out its illness (talons crossed) but there have been cases in the past where a sick hawk seemed better one day then rapidly declined…so hawk watchers will be back tomorrow morning to check on its progress.
