That is one tough looking chicken, I think it might be starving/weakened though to hang around on the ground with you that close. Maybe feed it a raw chicken thigh with the bone out, but skin on?

I don't advise giving it water or feeding it. That is what my state advises in such a case.

it was hissing and yelling at me. I took the pic with my phone. I was that close to it! No zoom lens here.

With rabies, that's the case for sure. However an animal generally won't drink if it is rabid.

Probably be gone in the morning anyway....

Birds do not carry rabies. Mottled feathers indicate an immature bird?

It does look young, but I am not familiar with that species of hawk. If so, perhaps it cannot fly yet.

I would advise against feeding it, maybe put some water out where it can find it. Don't be a "mother" and show yourself feeding. Just leave a dish somewhere with water in it and maybe will collect water if it rains.

You have to remember this is a wild animal and thrives in the wild. That goes for all the others that might interact with it, including eat it. Sorry, but that's the way it goes. Human intervention generally only makes wild animals more likely to fail to survive in the future. You aren't doing it any favours by feeding it.

Birds do carry viruses and insect parasites. Remember that birds, pigs and humans are the three legs of virus mutation. It may carry a virus that is harmful to humans but benign to the bird.

Surely there is someone you can call if it really bothers you, who will capture it, mend it if necessary, and release it. SPCA (or ASPCA) is not just about dogs and cats.

Johnny Ö too succinct Ö itís from CA Ö this bird is probably entitled to more than this OP who thinks he owns that land Ö thatís why the bird is angry Ö

If you get a virus from a pig, you need a oinkment.

If you get the virus from a bird, you need a tweetment.
