G1 Status Update—June 27
On Sunday June 26, 2016, one of the recently fledged Red-tailed Hawks from the Cornell Hawks nest (“G1”) was discovered unable to fly and was taken to the Cornell Janet L. Swanson Wildlife Health Center (see earlier post for details). The veterinarians performed a complete examination at the center and allowed the bird to rest quietly for the rest of the evening. Although they suspect an injury to the shoulder, they are awaiting further tests (including radiographs to be performed later today) to determine the extent of these injuries. Since arriving Sunday afternoon, G1 appears to be doing well, and seems to be curious about its new environment. We hope to be able to update you later today or tomorrow morning after the radiographs have been taken and evaluated. If you have questions, please send them to email@example.com and we will be working together to answer them. All of the staff at the Wildlife Health Center would like to offer their heartfelt thanks to all of you who have expressed concerns for G1. Your support and kind thoughts are much appreciated!
