Specialists Taking Care of Three Baby Hawks in Waterloo

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) --
   Rehabilitation specialists say they're now caring for three young hawks found around downtown Waterloo.
   Specialists with the Black Hawk Wildlife Rehabilitation Project say the birds were recently discovered on streets and sidewalks. One hawk was corralled into a coin-operated laundry facility. Another was caught in a cardboard box, and the other was found hanging near a dumpster.
   The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports ( ) residents believe the hawks were hatched on the fire escape outside a downtown building.
   Officials suspected toxins had caused the birds' lethargic behavior. Now they think the area just isn't suitable for them to learn flying and hunting.
   The newspaper reports the birds will be given a soft release when they're ready to return to the wild. It means a feeding platform will be available to them.
