Diesel* (Red-shouldered hawk) was retired from the sport of falconry when her handler realized she only wanted to hunt earthworms and grasshoppers instead of a hawks usual prey. Diesel is a human imprint, which means she does not recognize her own species. Can you imagine what it would be like if you didn’t recognize yourself as being a human around other humans?
The Ohio Bird Sanctuary takes care of birds that cannot make it on their own in the wild anymore. Some have been injured or where kept as pets. This red tailed hawk was hit by a car and that is how it came to be at the sanctuary. It is now blind in one eye and it’s right wing is a bit wonky but it can fly still.
