Rehabbers are aware of the bag around the hawk's leg

Hi. As you have probably heard and seen via the nest cam, one of the hawk babies has a plastic bag twisted around its leg. I wanted to let you know that I heard through the grapevine (and upon good authority) that local birder organizations and rehabbers are aware of the situation and that rehabbers have been given permission to help remove the bag from the leg. I don't know the timing of when this will occur but I'm trusting it will be within a few days or less.

In the meantime, personally, I cannot watch the cam. It is too heart-wrenching for me to see the bird hampered like this. It brings up too many bad and angry memories over the Violet situation.

The good side of this is that the hawks are faring well despite this bit of trouble and that plans are in place to assist.
