Red-Shouldered Hawk Gets Back to Nature


Lloyd Brown with Wildlife Rescue of Dade County frees a red-shouldered hawk to initiate the 24-hour species inventory at the National Geographic-National Park Service Biscayne BioBlitz.

“The bird was brought to us in late February with what appeared to be a head injury that had caused brain trauma,” said Brown. “For several weeks it couldn’t stand. But we’ve had it in a cage where it had to hunt and catch its food, and it was doing well. We think she was ready to get home.”
