Both fledglings have now suffered collisions and are recovering at the Audubon Wildlife Care Center. The first came into the Care Center on Tuesday after flying into a car. the second go caught in a gust of wind during the storm last evening. Pedestrians saw it slam into a building window and drop to the ground. Portland Police recovered the hawk and delivered it to Dove Lewis Emergency Hospital (which accepts injured wildlife after hours on behalf of Audubon.) Dove Lewis care for the hawk overnight and we picked-up the bird this morning. He is currently being examined by our veterinarian. If all goes well, hopefully we will be able to return both birds to their parents this weekend.

The following are pictures of the second fledgling during examination and banding this afternoon:
