Injured redtailed hawk rescued from tracks

Taken to Tufts for X-rays, loving care

A red-tailed hawk was recuperating Friday after it apparently hitched a ride on a commuter rail train on the ­Newburyport Line into North Station.

The Animal Rescue League delivered the hawk, common to Massachusetts, to the wildlife clinic at Tufts University’s ­Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine just before noon Friday. It was to be X-rayed there and kept through the weekend as it recovers.
