Bird Rescue

We had something exciting happen yesterday; a hawk with a broken wing was in our backyard. It's unclear exactly what happened, but it was under our plum trees for about an hour before the rescue people got here. Two volunteers from the Department of Wildlife came by to get it. They took it to a bird rescue center where they will eventually release it back into the wild. 
The birds and squirrels in our yard were going nuts. They sat above it and were making a huge racket. 
Here are some pictures I took. We couldn't get very close; every time we opened the door or went outside it moved further away.

Smokey was fascinated:

And then the rescue people came:
