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.
