At the Avian Reconditioning Center, it is always our goal when a bird is brought in, that we help rehabilitate it and release it back into the wild.

Unfortunately that is not always the case. This juvenile Red-tailed Hawk sustained an injury to her wing. She would not be able to hunt and take care of herself on her own.

With the help of our falconer Meredith, these two volunteers Ale and Bill, are teaching the hawk glove training. Although there are many hours of training and much patience, this hawk is young and eager to learn.

Thanks to our volunteers, this beautiful Red-tailed hawk will become an Educational Ambassador.
