Found Bird

Dottie found a bird in our yard.  Luckily it was on the other side of the fence.  It is either a red tailed hawk or a red shouldered hawk.  It did have red shoulders.  But it also looked like a red tail to me.  Something was obviously wrong.  I called Animal Control, but they were not able to come for several hours.  By the time they came I was afraid it was dead.  He was still alive- barely, it seemed.  If I had known it would be so docile (something was very wrong) I would have taken it in myself.  The AC officer carted it off and said she was making a run to the rehab center tonight.  I hope it survived, but based on the condition he was in, I'm not sure how good the prognosis was.
