“When hawks get stuck in something they’re not normally in, they can’t figure out how to get out,” Wicker told Wave 3 News.
This was surely the case for this bird, who seemed to be stunned from the incident. But as soon as he was pulled out, he started flapping his wings and calling out.
The light fixture had a pane missing off the top, which is how Wicker believes the hawk flew inside. The lightbulb inside had shattered, presumably from the hawk trying to escape, and glass was everywhere.
