This juvenile goshawk was brought in with a left wing injury and a little bumble foot on his left foot. The wing injury required surgery and pins being inserted into the humorous to hold things together until all healed up. Dr. Scott examined the goshawk to make sure it's healing as we all would like. It's too soon to be able to tell if she's releasable after rehab. Notice the feet all taped up. That for safety reasons during the exam. These birds are very aggressive and don't like living indoors with lots of people around. The tape is removed when it's returned to it's mew. I'll keep you updated.
