AMSTERDAM –  An injured red-tailed hawk found last week in Amsterdam has been rescued and is doing well, the Amsterdam Police Department said on its Facebook page Monday.

The juvenile bird was found injured on Race Course Street in the city Wednesday, police said. The post did not describe the hawk’s injuries.

Sgt. Jacob Gifford and nuisance wildlife control operator Ed Walega managed to contain the hawk and transport him to local wildlife rehabilitation operation Avian Experience/Sarah’s Birds of Prey.

“Today the hawk is doing very well,” the department wrote. 

The department also directed people who wish to donate toward the hawk’s care or to the care of other animals there to Avian Experience’s Facebook page.
