This is our first hawk for 2015. This big baby came in with a left wing Radius fracture which our wonderful Avian Veterinarian, Dr. Jeanne Smith, wrapped. Birds wing bones are similar to our arms with an upper wing Humerus and lower wing Radius and Ulna. Fortunately for this guy, the fracture is in place and should heal well in just a couple of weeks.
