Hawks get help in two Alabama counties

Red-tailed hawk helped off netting at Top Golf

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Two beautiful hawks needed a little help Monday in two different corners of Alabama.

A red-tailed hawk got caught in some of the netting at Top Golf in Birmingham Monday morning.

Employees called Birmingham Fire Rescue units who came out to help free the bird of prey.

At one point firefighters used water to try and send the bird flying. Eventually the hawk just climbed to the top of the net, rested for a minute and flew away.
