    Was dropped off at animal hospital as a baby hawk which obviously is not. Just curious as to breed and sex if anyone knows. Thanks[​IMG]

    It is a male. It looks like a bantam, possibly old english game. Can you take a picture next to something common for size reference? Also, is the head feathered?

    I once had somebody drop off a juvenile pigeon as a 'baby osprey.' Also had someone bring in a 'puppy' that was actually a tiny pink newborn squirrel!

    Looks like a little mixed breed, could likely be a cockerel but kind of hard not knowing how old it is.
