Environmental Conservation Officer Crisafulli reported that an injured hawk was spotted off the Putnam County Bike Path in Brewster, Putnam County, NY.
ECO Crisafulli responded and located the red-shouldered hawk on a nearby woodpile. It was unable to fly away due to an injured wing.
ECO Crisafulli safely captured the hawk and transported it to a wildlife rehabilitator where it’s expected to make a full recovery before being returned to the wild.
