The arrow struck before he knew what was happening.  The young hawk tried to clean the wound and go on.  And he did for several weeks.  Can you imagine?  He was able to fly and survive for several weeks with an arrow right through his little body!  But then the arrow caught in a tree and the hawk broke his leg while trying to get out.  How will he ever survive now?  Believe it or not, this story is based on a real hawk that was shot by a hunter.
