One more newby!

Hi! Just signed on to this board. Looks like it is a nice friendly atmosphere to be hanging around in. We live in East Central Okla. and own and opperate a small self sustaining farm. We have just today found what we believe to be a sparrow hawk with a broken wing in our farm road. We have not got a clue as to what to do to help it heal and fly again. So far we have stablilized the dammaged wing, and are feeding it small amounts of raw hamburger and giving it access to water. It seems to be much better now and seems eager for a small portion of meat and we have seen him drinking a bit of water. Any suggestions to help us help this little hawk are sorely needed. Thanks, Okie

Wow! Was that quick! Thank you so much for the information. We had no idea there were so many rehabilitators here in Okla. We will contact the nearest to us immediately and get some help tending to this little guy with the broken wing. Thanks so much! Okie & SWMBO

Hello to you Okie-Dokie,

Some usefull advice on assessing the damage in post #2 http://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=24363 from Anthony Morton; it's for a dove but the principles are the same. This is no substitute for an experts evaluation and diagnosis though!

Key KC, thats a MONSTER post

Good luck,

Andy.
