A sad day as nature took its course and the juvenile Savannah Hawk was found dead in the scrub near the transitional forest. The juvenile was in perfect condition when it was found and could not have been dead for long so I took it back to the base so that it could be exhibited in the museum. Helen performed the post mortem today (13th), that revealed the cause of death was mal nutrition and an infection probably caused by the former.
Helen has spent all day processing this fine specimen and what an excellent job she has made of it. The bird is now stuffed and treated and its spirit will live on in the Laguna Blanca Museum!
