Hawk Hurt After Flight Through Binghamton Office Building

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A red-tailed hawk was injured when it flew into a window at a downtown Binghamton restaurant.

Witnesses said the bird had been spotted flying around the MetroCenter on Court Street on Monday afternoon.

The hawk emerged from the office building and apparently crashed into a window at a Chinese restaurant at the corner of Court and Washington streets.

A man who noticed the hurt hawk told WNBF News he saw mayor-elect Rich David on Court Street and asked him to call for assistance for the injured bird.

Police dispatched a dog control officer to the scene around 2:30 p.m. The dazed bird was found in front of another business at 44 Court Street.

One witness said the hawk was unconscious for a few minutes, then became alert. It stood in the doorway of the business until it could be taken to a veterinarian for treatment.
