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 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.

Holy cow!

American Eagle Foundation
Have you ever seen someone perform the Star Spangled Banner and then catch a free-flying Bald Eagle on her glove during the very last note? Well, we may have just made history! In this video, Challenger the Eagle gets released by AEF eagle handler Laura Jean Arlene Cecere-Sterbens and soars from center stage to AEF's Spencer Williams at the back of an arena full of 6,000 people....and then he flies back to the stage to AEF's Julia Margaret Mary Cecere as she simultaneously sings the National Anthem! A big thanks to Team National for inviting us to be a part of your convention in Dallas for a second year! And also a big shoutout to AEF's Michelle Bauer, AEF President Al Cecere, and videographer Courtney Maree, who were all behind the scenes at tonight's event!

Amazing. Definitely one to share! 🦅

I still get this overwhelming pride when I hear this song and now even more. Thank you for sharing this special day.

I sure wish the feds would relax the standards for having a non-releasable eagle. Hundreds of them are euthanized every year because the conditions to keep one are so restrictive. The feds will give them to the indians to ritually kill them for their religious ceremonies, but will not allow an individual permittee like myself to keep and care for one. Go figure...

And if you don't believe me - search 'Feds give Indians permit to kill eagles'

Amen!

AMEN!

That’s the truth!

And on top of it, you are doing God’s work saving beautiful creatures. ❤️

There's a lot to be said for that, Monteen...I did it most of my life. But reality dictates that planning for old age is a must. Please do a better job at it than I did. I'm okay, but could've done a lot better. I just thought the "glory days" would never end and I missed many opportunities. I had an old friend from grammar school (who is a millionaire now) tell me good naturedly once...."Pardner, you've just always been too busy making a living to ever make any serious money". Lots of truth in that too. 👍

And you are out in nature all the time. Blessed!

When you love what you do, you are blessed

Another textbook release of an injured youngster that experienced a rough start out at life!

The survival rate for young raptors is usually only about 20% during their first year and sometimes, they just need a second chance. Rehabbers are necessary to offset all the raptors lost to car crashes, poisonings and shootings. They are a vital part of any healthy ecosystem.

HawkTalk is a very small raptor charity about an hour north of Atlanta. And being small, it's difficult to get grants, so we rely on donations to help keep them flying and keep them free!

If you would like to help us with some 'Mouse Money', please click on the 'donate' button on our page (and 'like' us too) and it will take you to a secure PayPal page to complete your donation. You can even set up a monthly donation which will remind you before it's sent to us and so you can cancel at any time if you need to.

We are a 501(c)3 not-for profit organization. Our tax ID number 58-2099672 and you can look us up on Guidestar.org to make sure we are legit.

If you are hinky about electronic donating, you are welcome to send a check to our post office address:

are we allowed to visit? I live in Woodstock and would love to volunteer

Beautiful!

Beautiful!

He was wild as a snake, this one. He tagged me TWICE on the top of the head as I was trying to gather him up in the big boy chamber. He was having NONE of me and didn't mind letting me know it.

Need to wear a hard hat!

No kidding! and safety glasses!
