New Patoka Lake Raptor Introduced To Residents

Last updated on Monday, April 2, 2007

(BIRDSEYE) - Residents were invited to meet the new red-tailed hawk at Patoka Lake over the weekend.

It was part of the Patoka Raptors Program at the Visitor's Center.

Patoka's naturalist, Maria Abel-Crecelius said the new hawk, which she believes to be about 10 months old, came to Patoka in December after being found along the side of a road near Anderson.

A hawk that previously lived at the visitor center died in April 2005.
