After visiting with the raptor vet he explained that he must have been ill when I trapped him and never recovered. These are beautiful creations and it is extremely sad to have to bury such an amazing creature. My sponsor and fellow falconers in the Dallas Fort Worth area have been supportive and actually have gone with me to trap another Red Tail. I am starting a new thread with all of his information and progress. His name is Mr. Hobbs (my grandfather).
Sorry for your loss
