Question I found a hawk with a broken wing

Found the fucker on the back road, threw my shirt over it's head and put it in the trunk. Also found a tiny raccoon that was injured, but I'm pretty sure it won't make it. (punctured lung/s)

I googled it a bit, got the basic info on how to wrap it and feed it.
Anyone have any other advice from a past experience with wild birds?

I have a 2 story 30x50 shop it will stay in.

Take it to the RSPCA or the nearest equivalent. Or see if you can find a bird protection place. They will know how to care for it, you risk hurting it more if you don't know what you're doing.
Where do you live? See if there are any animal charities nearby that can help.

Injured birds

Handling must be firm but gentle. Being handled and treated is a very stressful experience for an injured bird, and before you attempt to catch it, you should consider the benefits of treatment weighed against this.

For instance, a bird with an injured leg is probably best left, but a wing injury is serious enough to merit capture and treatment.

It is usually difficult to catch an injured bird and careless handling may cause further injury. Handling must be firm but gentle. Small birds up to blackbird size can be held in one hand. Place your hand over the bird so that its head fits between your forefinger and middle finger. The rest of your fingers will naturally wrap around each wing, holding the bird firmly.

Medium-sized birds are best held with two hands, one over each wing. Handling large birds requires great care because of risk of injury to the handler. Unless you are used to handling large birds, it is best to call an expert rescuer to the bird rather than try to capture it yourself.

Once the bird is caught, examine it quickly and place it in a well ventilated covered box to wait for treatment. Darkness reduces stress, and is likely to be the best first aid you can give the bird. It is also the best treatment for shock.

An injured bird should always be passed onto a local vet, RSPCA in England and Wales, SSPCA in Scotland, USPCA in Northern Ireland or an independent rescue centre, so it can receive appropriate treatment without undue delay.

Birds that have been caught by a cat should almost always be taken to a vet as a matter of urgency because of the high risk of septicaemia.

I've rehabilitated an owl with a busted wing before, took me about 5 weeks. If it isn't a fawn or baby mammal they usually just kill them. There are no such places in the Interlake, Manitoba.

I'll get some pics up shortly

Feed the raccoon to the hawk.

Really though how old is the hawk?

I left the raccoon at my girls for her mom to take care of, she can do more for it than I can. I don't know how old the hawk is, but it looks fucking cool when he goes on guard, all his feathers on his head go back at a 70*, intense.

Pictures tomorrow.
