Hawk Rescued on the Thruway - Greene County
On March 21, DLE Major Scott Florence was traveling southbound on the Thruway in the town of Coxsackie when he noticed a disoriented hawk standing in the center median. Unable to stop, he contacted ECO Anthony Glorioso, who was nearby. ECO Glorioso determined that the Coopers Hawk had likely been hit by a car. With heavy traffic and the hawk just feet away from the travel lane, ECO Glorioso was able to get behind the hawk, cover it with a blanket, and transport it to his car. The hawk was taken to Triple F Wildlife Services in Hunter for evaluation and rehabilitation.
