Adopt Jamaica the Red-tailed Hawk


SKU: ADOR-JAM Category:


Jamaica was rescued in the Los Lunas area in 1989 having sustained a gunshot wound to the head and damage to her right wing. The wing was amputated at the wrist and she cannot fly. Her left eye was also damaged by the pellets lodged in her head. She may be able to see light, and some movement, but is essentially blind in that eye. In 2009 and 2010, she began laying and incubating unfertilized eggs, and she still does this despite her advanced age! She lives with Quemado and is one of our oldest resident birds, and therefore is fully retired. She can be a bit grumpy towards humans, but we love her for it!
