Default Injured hawk

I found a hawk that is injured, he can't fly but can lift both of his wings . Does anyone know of a place that will take him in and see if they can take care of him til he's better? Hate to see him hopping down the road, gonna get ran over. Thanks folks

check in the area for vets that will take him. They will fix medical issues and then pass him to rehab.

Even well meaning individuals get in trouble with raptors. You could also call DNR. They have a list of rehab folks.

Try calling the Georgia Southern Raptor Center. If they can't take him, surely they know who can.

Thanks for the replies. I found a woman online yesterday that runs a rehab center just for raptors, so hopefully she can do something with him.
