Species: Red Tailed Hawk
Stanley came to CALM through our Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in July of 2010. Stanley was diagnosed with neurological impairment caused by West Nile Virus; making it impossible for him to return to the wild. After surviving from WNV, Stanley has made his way to being one of CALM’s Ambassador animals. He is often used in discussions regarding West Nile Virus which can affect all species and comes from mosquitos carrying the virus. Because Stanley has neurological issues, he is hand fed by our dedicated keeper staff at each feed!
Habitat: An eastern population ranges west through southern Canada from southern New Brunswick and Ontario to the eastern edge of the U.S. Great Plains, south to Florida, the Gulf Coast, and eastern Mexico. Only northernmost populations are migratory. A western population breeds west of the Sierra Nevada from northern California to northern Baja California, and has recently expanded into Oregon and Arizona, and east of the Sierra Nevada in California and southern Nevada.
Diet: At CALM, Stanley enjoys a variety of mice, rats and chicks to satiate his ever-growing appetite!
