Adopt Harlan the Red-tailed Hawk
Harlan, named for his subspecies (Harlan’s Red-tailed Hawk), came to us from the Cascades Raptor Center in Eugene, Oregon. He was hit by a car as an adult, resulting in a fracture in his left wing. He is housed with Lilla. Harlan’s Red-tailed Hawks are a relatively rare color morph in New Mexico (they are more commonly seen in the northern U.S. and Canada), and they are often misidentified. Harlan’s tail has just a tiny bit of rust coloration and vertically-streaked whitish feathers above. Harlan is a fantastic foster dad to rescued Red-tailed Hawk babies. He’s such a good dad that he sometimes forgets to feed himself because he is so preoccupied with feeding his babies!
