Adopt Cimmaron the Rough-legged Hawk


SKU: ADOR-CIM Category:


Cimarron was transferred to Hawks Aloft in January 2007 after being picked up in Roy, New Mexico with very little information about the history of his accident. A veterinary examination showed an injury to the elbow joint in his right wing. While Cimarron is still flighted, he does not fly well enough to be able to survive in the wild. His name means “Refugee from the North,” since Rough-legged Hawks are more commonly observed at farther-north latitudes; he was probably injured while migrating. Cimarron is fully retired from education programs.
