Limping hawk in Waterloo gets rehabilitation

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — An injured hawk discovered in downtown Waterloo has been sent to rehabilitation specialists.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (http://bit.ly/127BD6D ) the hawk was found limping Thursday morning near a convenience store. Witnesses say the hawk flew a foot or two off the ground but stayed close.

It was taken to the Cedar Valley Humane Society office, where staff found no obvious signs of injury.

The hawk has been transferred to specialists with the Black Hawk Wildlife Rehabilitation Project, who say they have experience with downtown hawks.

The bird will be cared for until it’s strong enough to be released.
