Have You Seen This Hawk?
It was last seen flying in the Putnam area.
If you happen to see a hawk flying around the Hudson Valley with an arrow stuck in its chest, you aren't seeing things. According to the Animal Nation Facebook page, this hawk has been spotted in the Putnam area and Animal Nation is looking for help in finding it.
If you or someone you know that lives in the Putnam area of, Morrissey Drive, Oriole Street or Oscawana Lake Road can you please ask them to keep their eyes open for this hawk. Yes it has an arrow through it.
Animal Nation said that the hawk has a "silver shafted arrow with red and white fins" lodged in its right shoulder through to the right chest. They have said that the hawk is able to fly with the arrow in it, but would love to be able to catch the hawk so that they can remove the arrow from it.
The injured hawk was last spotted flying across Oriole Street towards Oscawana Lake Road, so it might still be in that area.
If you do see this hawk flying anywhere across the Hudson Valley, Animal Nation is asking that you contact them either through Facebook here or you can call them at 914-400-6014 and they will instruct you on what to do next.
On this Wildlife Wednesday we are seeking your help! Attention residents in Putnam NY - Morrissey Drive, Oriole St,...
