The results for toxicology tests for the two remaining Riverside baby hawks should be available very soon. I spoke to the lab today (May 27th) and they are just finalizing them.********Central Park's horrible garbage management

UC Davis lab results are in for the 1st retrieved baby hawk from Riverside Park:
Blood/organ samples contained lethal levels of two anti-coagulant rodenticides.
I will publish more information when I am allowed to. Please note that this information comes from just one set of test results. There are several more to be performed--bear in mind that only the pathologist can officially declare the actual cause of death in the baby hawks.
