SAEGERTOWN -- An uncommon-looking bird is recuperating at Tamarack Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center after being caught in a raccoon trap.
The red-tailed hawk, which is unusual because it is almost completely white, was taken to the center near Saegertown and underwent surgery on Nov. 8. It is receiving hydrotherapy while wildlife rehabilitators determine whether it will be able to return to the wild.
"The hawk is doing very well," Carol Holmgren, Tamarack's executive director, said.
The hawk was caught in the trap and found Nov. 3 in the Saegertown area, Holmgren said. She said the trapper immediately arranged for the bird to be admitted to Tamarack.
