Ivan, a Red-tailed hawk (Buteo jamaicensis), was found next to HWY 166 near New Cuyama, injured by a collision with a car while attempting to catch prey running across the highway.  The impact caused a wing fracture and blindness in one eye.  Ivan was a full adult with a red tail when he arrived, so his true age is unknown.  Since Red-tailed hawks' tail feathers turn red when they are 2 years old, we know he was at least 2 years old when he was adopted in 1998.  He was adopted from Wildlife Care of Ventura (now Ojai Raptor Center) in 1998, around the same time as Max, our Great horned owl.
