Ferruginous orphans at Second Chance

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

A couple of the newest patients at Second Chance Wildlife Rehabilitation came in together from the Monticello area. These nestling Ferruginous hawks were found on the ground where their nest had collapsed with the branch it was built on.  One of the parents was found nearby, dead.  There was no sign of the other parent.

These two babies were not injured, but had some other problems, which are being taken care of and now they are growing like weeds.

Ferruginous hawks are endangered in Utah and on a Sensitive Species list. They should be in rehab for another few weeks, building their strength and flight muscles and then, learning to kill. Second Chance is entirely funded by donations.
