Education Animals

Red-tailed Hawk

05-11, a female Red-tailed Hawk, arrived into rehabilitation in 2005 after being found perched on a car parked at a forest preserve. She was emaciated and suffered from anemia, internal and external parasites. It appeared that she had been raised illegally and improperly and then released to fend for herself.

05-11 was deemed to be imprinted on humans and, therefore, is non-releasable. She has no physical injuries, is fully-flighted and  flies in educational programs.

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.
