Hopefully I saved a raptors life today.

So I was sitting in my usual spot in Golden Gate Park when suddenly beside me branches, a pine cone and a body came crashing to the ground. I immediately noticed the body was that of a raptor. It had feathers but no wings. The bird had fallen approx. 50 feet from it’s nest in the tree, but it was still alive. I immediately went into action, and called the Park Rangers. They transferred me to Animal Care and Control, who responded in minutes. I led them to the bird and they took it away. It appeared to be a baby hawk/raptor. Sometimes the adults will throw out the babies who they think may not live. But I felt it was worth getting that bird help.

Update: called Animal Care and Control and they said the raptor was bleeding from its mouth and was not breathing normally so they had to euthanize it.
