Thorny Red-tailed Hawk
In November, 1993, Dr. Thorndike brought a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk to the center. The bird had suffered a massive wing injury from either being hit by a car or gunshot, and Dr. Thorndike had amputated the right wing, to save her life. Her large size suggested that she is a female; her calm disposition allows us to use her for education programs. Thorny is currently retired from educational programs but still resides at The Trust.
