ROSIE THE RED-TAILED HAWK
Rosie is one of our resident Red-tailed Hawks. She lives with Wonder. Rosie was found as a nestling on the ground under her nest where she was being attacked by crows. In the fall from her nest, she sustained a broken wing that never healed properly. Rosie was born in 2005.
Red-tailed Hawks are the most common Hawks in North America. There are 14 different subspecies of Redtails, not all of which have red tails! Red-tailed Hawks like Rosie don't actually receive their red tails and adult plumage until they are two years old.
