Thank you for visiting HawkTalk.Org

Call us at 1-770-720-1847 to discuss hawk rescue.  We care for raptors (birds of prey) that cannot be released back to the wild.

We also rehabilitate hawks, owls, eagles, kites, falcons and ospreys.

We need Mouse Money!

You can also help out by visiting smile.amazon.com.  They will donate to us based on purchases that you make and it doesn’t cost you anything.

We are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization located in North Georgia providing hawk rescue and care for other raptors (birds of prey) including owls, eagles, falcons and osprey.hawk rescue and owl rehabilitation

We operate our facility based on donations from caring people who, for one reason or another, aren’t in the position to be rehabbers themselves, but are interested in and dedicated to the preservation and protection of raptors.

We also do off site programs for schools, nature centers, scouts, birthday parties, public displays, etc.  This is done on a fee basis. Please call for details!

Hacking for hawk rescue or owl rehabilitation.

Hacking is an old falconry technique that is literally, thousands of years old. Hacking (AKA soft release) is how we re-introduced the Golden Eagle back to the Cumberland Plateau in northwest Georgia, the American Bald eagle to the Lake Allatoona area north of Atlanta and the Peregrine Falcon in downtown Atlanta.  We can help you with this procedure or provide it as a service.
For more information, see our blog post on Hacking Orphaned Hawks and Owls.

Bless you and every thing you do!

I’m sorry

I’m so sorry. I’m always glad when something slips easily away, though. I have a fawn that I really need to send on her way but I can’t do it. So, each day she grows and we love her more and she walks less and less. There’s one every year. Mostly, I’m hard-hearted about it but there’s always the one that gets under my skin. I’m sorry about your Stevie.

Monteen you gave her the BEST chance to live! Thank you for all you do!🌈

Thanks for everything you do! So sorry that this one slipped away...

So very sorry

So sorry 🌈

Thank you so much for what you do; I believe this is the hawk that my husband (Steve) found! He is extremely happy that you have her and she has a chance now.

I double that❤️

Because I was forced to watch multiple baseball games simultaneously on the weekends, (mostly Saturdays, I think) I would take the opportunity to hide the remote deep in the couch cushions whenever Steve would go into the kitchen for another frosty adult beverage and wear my best poker face while he frantically searched for it.

The poor dear actually had to get up and manually change the channels back and forth. Upon the next return trip from the kitchen, the remote would magically appear on the coffee table, seemingly out of nowhere.

Fast forward past the divorce - (I got the couch) Whenever Sam (my now 30 year old Great horned owl) would visit in the house with me, he would grab the remote and cache it down into the couch cushions...IT LOOKED LIKE HIS PRIZE RAT - made me a big believer in karma, it did...

Mice do this, too... I waited 6 months before confessing to Steve that in my haste to get some mice thawed out, I accidentally exploded them in the microwave, otherwise he would have dashed out and bought another one.

Stevie was a good sport.

Defo the best job in the world. When I was spike climbing a 50' utility pole during a thunder storm to feed baby ABE's on Lake Allatoona, my poor husband was yelling from below that I was going to be killed by lightening. "Nah...we installed a lightning rod!"

I was employed by GA DNR's Non-Game program making seven dollars a day to collect food, feed and track Goldens along the back spur of Lookout Mtn and Balds on Allatoona. I've never worked so long or so hard and had the time of my life.
