CLIP – African Goshawk (Accipiter tachiro)

Clip is one of many birds that falls foul of illegal trapping each year. Fortunately she somehow escaped and made it into the refuge of a bird lovers garden. Her Wings, Talons, Beak and tail had all been clipped off with a blunt pair of scissors. She is now on  a comprehensive nutrition plan and is re-growing her feathers back fast. The intention is to release her back to the wild once she is flying and fit.
