Baby Red-tailed Hawk, ECHO, was put to sleep today. His eye exam revealed a retina that wasn't working at all and in the other eye the pupil was opening and closing without a light being shined toward it. Apparently the trauma of hitting the ground was just too much. He did have some sight but not enough to feed himself. It was very crushing to lose such a marvelous young bird. He never even got a chance to fly.
