Adopt Aguililla the Red-tailed Hawk
Lilla arrived at Hawks Aloft as a juvenile, having been found in the backyard of a local falconer. She had suffered severe trauma to her left eye, along with glaucoma. Veterinarians made the difficult, but essential, decision to surgically remove her eye in order to avoid further complications. She has no problems flying, but, since hawks depend heavily on their binocular vision, she would have trouble hunting in the wild. Lilla is a big girl and she is often mistaken for a Golden Eagle when attending outreach events. Her full name, Aguililla, is Spanish for Little Eagle. She lives with Harlan.
