Hawk fledgling
Photographer: Kelly Cherry
Location: Arroyo Grande, CA
I volunteer with the local wildlife rescue group and was called to check on a young hawk that someone had found wandering near a busy road. The reporting party had brought the bird to a fruit stand and everyone was admiring it...I moved it to a tree in a quieter spot until our renesting expert could come by. He has all the gear (ladder, raptor distress call recording)and was able to find the nest and parent.
