This juvenile Red-tailed hawk was brought to us last June with permanent damage to its right wing and leg making it unable to fly.  Our trained staff, consisting of Stephanie, Marco and Sarah pictured below, have worked with the bird for 6 long months in order to make him comfortable interacting with humans and trained to sit on a gloved hand.  We are very proud of how well-trained and cooperative our hawk has become, and we are starting to incorporate him into more tours and public demonstrations.  Come by the New England Wildlife Center to say hi and get a chance to see a beautiful wild raptor up close!
