Gorgeous!

I have to tell you my experience with a young Red Tail. A couple of years ago Mimi and I were driving to a local mall. I have the habit of taking back roads instead of Interstates. We rounded a corner and there along the road sat a young Red Tail. I thought it odd that he didn’t fly as we slowly approached. We stopped the car in the middle of the road and he still didn’t fly but rather hopped across the road. Surely, when I got out of the car he would fly, but he didn’t. Crouching down, he let me approach him, touch his head and then allowed me to pick him up. What a magnificent creature. Soft yet all muscle. Piercing eyes. Talons that were truly as pointed as needles. He never made any attempt to escape or be aggressive. We covered his head/eyes with a cloth, borrowed from a nearby house and set off to find a vet to check him out- all the while, holding this beautiful bird in my hands- realizing that if I set him on my leg those needle sharp talons would easily pierce pants and skin. At the third office, we finally located a vet with a “raptors license” who accepted him. At first glance, the vet thought he may have internal injuries or broken bones- both of which would probably be fatal as these birds do not heal well. He told us they would keep us up to date on his condition. A couple of weeks later, to our amazement, the vet called an said the bird had indeed survived, he was flying and “hunting”. They eventually released him back into the wild. Every time I see one riding the air currents, I wonder if it is the one I held in my hands.

Cool Lew, that is a good deed you did for that bird. I would love to see one up close like that, but not really…. they are meant to be soaring on thermals up high.
You deserve brownie points from the big guy upstairs, good karma…whatever your beliefs are :)
