Journey

Ferruginous Hawk

Journey, a male Ferruginous Hawk, was hit by a train in western Canada and was stuck in the train's plow for an estimated 1,500+ miles before he was found in a Franklin Park, IL rail yard. His suffered from head trauma and a severely dislocated right elbow. His right wing is permanently injured due to the elbow dislocation and, as a result, he is non-flighted and non-releasable.

All of Flint Creek Wildlife's educational animals are non-releasable due to the nature of their injuries.  In other words, animals that cannot survive in their natural habitat because of their injuries have been given a second chance at Flint Creek Wildlife - educating the public while living out their natural lives.
