Misty
the Cooper's Hawk

9 Years Old
Accipiter cooperii
Permanently damaged tendons in foot - cannot grasp prey
Came to Nature's Educators from A Falconer
Misty was a falconry (hunting) bird for 5 years. Her 6th year, she had an unfortunate injury causing the tendons in one foot to become permanently damaged. Because she cannot grasp food well enough to hold on, her vet decided it was safest for her to move into an educational situation.
