Default Violet, New York’s Red-Tailed Hawk, Dies

"Violet the red-tailed hawk, who earlier this year built a nest with her mate, Bobby, outside the office of John E. Sexton, the president of New York University just overlooking Washington Square and, via a live-streaming camera, the Hawk Cam, entranced viewers as the two hawks raised a family and hatched a hawk later named Pip, has died on Thursday. According to Robert Horvath, a raptor rehabilitator based on Long Island, Violet died of “heart-related complications” after undergoing surgery to amputate her diseased right foot."

How sad to know that she suffered so with a leg injury.
