Injured Hawk Captured in Poughkeepsie
On January 20, while on patrol in Orange County, ECOs Heather Carl and William Chomicki received a report of an injured hawk in the city of Poughkeepsie.
When the ECOs arrived, the red-tailed hawk was perched on a low branch with what appeared to be a broken wing.
The hawk was quickly captured without incident, transported to New Paltz Hospital for observation, and later picked up by a wildlife rehabilitator for treatment.
