Visit new red-shouldered hawk 'Shay' at local park | News
Largo, Florida -- The George C. McGough Nature Park has named their new female red-shouldered hawk Shay.
Shay was found with a shattered bone in the tip of her right wing. She was brought to a veterinary office in Tarpon Springs where staff had to amputate a section of her wing.
Due to Shay's injury, she is no longer suited to live in the wild and has found a permanent home at McGough Nature Center. Shay's enclosure and feeding is sponsored by the Clearwater Audubon Society and she receives free medical care from the veterinary staff at Busch Gardens.
You can see Shay in our new bird show every Wednesday at 11 a.m. at the Nature Center.
