Bronx Hawk Dilemma

Poisoned Red Tail HAwk BX Forest

On a walk with MPC last week we were informed of an unfortunate event that occurred some 2 months ago. Quinn Cushnie,  now of MPC but then a Green Apple Corps Member discovered the Red Tail Hawk pictured while on a walk in the Bronx River Forest with his girlfriend. Early reports were that the raptor had apparently eaten a poisoned rat though the latest information has it as trauma. In any case, this occurred early in the nesting season, making it possibly a larger tragedy than just the one shown. For more details click here.
