MIDTOWN — A group of police officers saved a red-tailed hawk in Midtown, the NYPD said Wednesday.
Three police officers rescued the red-tailed hawk, which was found on the ground on West 57th Street and Sixth Avenue Wednesday morning. Officers on scene thought the bird might have hit the building because it was "just lying there, just looking around," according to an NYPD officer.
"He wasn't moving at all," he said.
The officers responded with an emergency services unit, authorities said, which covered the hawk in a blanket and brought him to the Wild Bird Fund Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center on the Upper West Side. The bird will be evaluated at 1:30 p.m. today, according to police.
