Red-Tailed Hawk Release in Windsor Locks


Wildlife rehabbers Wanda D’Agostino and Thomas Church release a red-tailed hawk in Southwest Park in Windsor Locks, Connecticut. The hawk was found a few streets over from the park. It suffered a broken bone in its wing, but with some special care from Bolton Vet and H.O.W.L. CT, the hawk was strong enough for a release in early August.





East Hartford, Connecticut – Red Tailed Hawk Release

This red tailed hawk was found in a Hartford, Connecticut junkyard and was possibly poisoned after eating a rat. Connecticut wildlife rehabilitator Wanda D’Agostino nursed the hawk back to health for about a month. The hawk was initially treated at Bolton Veterinary Hospital by Dr. Zyra.

The hawk made a full recover, making quick work of road-kill squirrels and five mice a day. He eventually became strong enough to be released back into the wild.

Once released on the East Hartford Connecticut river dike, the hawk flew into a large tree—and was instantly ‘dive bombed’ by blue jays. He ignored them for awhile and finally flew off into the woods. Freedom… Yah!
