Hi Alicia,


If you go back to that area, tell me the hawk is still there and wait for me to 
arrive, I will come. Otherwise, it's a long drive for what is likely to be a 
wild goose chase.

Hi,

      On my way home from work, at 5:30 PM, an injured mature (and
gorgeous) red-tailed hawk was in a field just south of Interlaken. It
was able to jump and flap for very short distances - maybe 3' in lift
and 10' in distance - and was progressing through a series of flap/hops,
but appeared to have an injury to the left wing and possibly weakness in
the left leg.  It was extremely alert - it watched crouched by the side
of Rte 96A for a series of cars and trucks to scream past and then
flap/hopped across the road - but surely will tire quickly.  The field I
last saw it in is I think the same one where a Snowy Owl was seen
briefly earlier this year (not be me) and is a favorite of foxes and
coyotes.

      Anyone have the name/phone number of someone willing to go after
this strong but injured bird?  I can give more specific directions then,
or meet someone there to show them where it was last seen.

                     Alicia
