Cooper’s Hawk Released

Cooper’s Hawk brought into Humboldt Wildlife Care Center on the Winter Solstice after being hit by a car on US 101 along Humboldt Bay. She was a lucky bird! Only stunned by the impact, after a night of captivity her wits were regained and she was flying as strongly as ever. No injuries were present and she was quickly returned to the area where she’d been found. In excllent condtion this bird is a very capable hunter. Let’s hope she raises some young to be just like her next Spring! Check out the video taken by BAX/HWCC volunteer Cheryl Henke
