Pearl is a Red Tailed Hawk, hatched in 2003. In the fall of that year, she was hit by a car near the village of Cedar, Michigan. The car collision ripped out the long wing feathers, called primaries and secondaries, from her left wing. This trauma permanently damaged the feather follicles, preventing the re-growth of any future feathers. Pearl is permanently disabled and can never be released back into the wilds.
