TWIN LAKE, Mich. (WZZM) -- The Braveheart Raptor Rehabilitation Center in Cedar Creek Township helps dozens of birds of prey every year, including a red tailed hawk hit this week by a car in Oceana County.
Inside a large cage, two red tailed hawks are recovering. One was hit by a car near Grand Haven. "She is doing much better," said Susan Stamy with the center. The other was struck while flying across Scenic Road in Oceana County. "She has yet to fly to another perch, but both of these birds were x-rayed on Tuesday and there were no fractures."
Stamy hopes very soon both hawks can be placed on this releasing platform and to return to the wild. But, some birds that can't return to the wild become education birds.
"She is blind in her right eye and she also had a dislocated elbow that was surgically repaired," said Stamy.
