AWPE 16-843

Three American White Pelicans in three days

The first Pelican arrived on Thursday. It flew into a yard in John Day, OR, then didn’t have the strength to leave. The only visible injury was a small wound on the bird’s lower back. It was emaciated and had an estimated white blood cell count of 39,600, indicating it was fighting some type of infection.

RTHA 16-835

As someone once said, “if it wasn’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all.” That pretty well sums up Red-tailed Hawk 16-835. First his leg was broken when someone shot him. The hawk was able to scavenge roadkill while his leg healed. Then he was hit by a car, shattering his right ulna, damaging the right wrist, elbow and shoulder.
