Thumbs up Hawk recovers from West Nile

Hawk recovers from West Nile

Hawk recovers from West Nile
excerpt from above:
Quote:
A golfer at Mahoney Golf Course, 7900 Adams St., noticed the young bird on the course July 24 and could tell something was wrong.

The golfer called Raptor Recovery Nebraska, and volunteer Carri Honz came to find the bird. Alan Culver, superintendent for the course, and assistant superintendent Rick Schneider took her to the hawk, which was hunkered down under a pine tree.
Quote:
Culver did the honors of releasing the hawk Friday morning. When he tossed the bird into the air, she immediately flew to the adjacent cemetery and perched high in a treetop.

I love stories with happy endings.

When I was a raptor rehabber in Iowa at the MacBride Raptor Project, we would get a lot of red-tails and great horned owls with West Nile- especially the first years it was prevelant. It is a great thing when they recover because a lot don't. It really messes with their nervous system. Great story!
