Goose is a male juvenile Red-shouldered Hawk. He has quite a unique story behind his name. When he was still in the egg, a young boy found him on the ground, and thinking the egg was a goose egg, took it home and placed it in an incubator.
When the egg hatched, however, it was definitely a hawk and not a goose! Since Goose received so much human contact at a very young age he became human imprinted, which means he has no idea he is a bird and instead thinks that he is a person.
We look forward to watching Goose grow up and thrive in our care and will keep you updated with photos as his plumage changes!
