Two red-tailed hawks find home at Largo’s McGough Nature Park

McGough Nature Park is the new home for two red tailed hawks. A female, Gwen, who has a permanently damaged wing and a juvenile male who was hit by a car and had a damaged eye. The young male was found by a member of the Clearwater Audubon Society. He was assessed and cared for by Busch Gardens and then went to a rehabber who placed him with Gwen. During the time the male hawk was healing, the two birds bonded and the decision was made to give them both to McGough Nature Park rather than split them up. After their arrival at McGough, the male did have to have his eye removed at Busch Gardens as a result of his injuries to preserve his health. The birds were placed in their new aviary home at McGough and will be cared for by the Birds of Prey volunteers for the rest of their lives." (Tallahassee, August 21, 2014) [JIMDAMASKE | Times]
