injured fledgling hawk

We have been adopted by this young hawk who appears to have an injured right wing. we have fed him raw chicken wings to sustain him, but we would like to get him some help and rehabilitation if needed. he seems unable to hunt on his own.

I would suggest you find a bird recovery center in your area. The one near where I live, is amazing, nursing injured owls, eagles, hawks back to health and freedom.

unfortunately its illegal to possess hawks, hawk feathers, and hawk nests-same with songbirds. now i suggest like the others to take the hawk to a wildlife center were licensed wildlife rehabers can take care of it. good luck!

I definitely would agree, you need to get in touch with WildLife Center or someone that can direct you to where you should take the bird. We found a Rail a few years ago, it had gotten away from the rest of the birds and didn't fly. We took him into a Wildlife Center where they would take care of him and soon get him back into the wild.
