AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – The injured Red-tailed Hawk rescued from a downtown Richmond street has been released back into the wild.

The hawk, discovered standing at the intersection of 3rd and Marshall Streets on Oct. 26, was released in an Augusta County field late last week.

Doctors at the Wildlife Center of Virginia treated the hawk’s ruptured air sac. After a few weeks of rest and recuperation, the hawk was ready for flight.

The Wildlife Center will not track the bird, but it did band its leg, so if the hawk were to re-injure itself, someone could call the center for aid.
