Raptor Rehab
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Caption: a red-tailed hawk
 
2     Angela held onto the large bird firmly. His large, golden eyes watched her with growing annoyance. She kept an eye on his large, hooked beak.
 
3     "Just hold still a moment longer, and we'll be done," she assured the hawk.
 
4     "There," said Cathy, the vet tech at the wildlife rehab center. "We'll get his blood sent off and tested for diseases like West Nile. He needs a full checkup to see what is wrong with him."
 
5     "Maybe he just wanted company," joked Angela.
 
6     Cathy didn't say anything. Instead, she just gave Angela a look that said, "Let's not be silly."
 
7     "You did do a good job at holding Emil still. He thrashed a lot when we tried to do a blood draw earlier," said Cathy.
 
8     "How did he come to be here?" asked Angela as they put the red tail back in his enclosure.
