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!
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.
Here’s what we have going at Facebook
These tube like things (feather sheaths) coming out from the cere and beak are called rictal bristles - sort of like whiskers on a cat - very sensitive to touch. When their eyes are closed and the parents bring food, they will trill as an audible alert and touch the food to these developing bristles which alerts the babe that luncheon is served and open goes the mouth. 🙂 ...

Thank you for being a mother of raptors. They needed your warrior energy to care and protect them.

And bless you for all you do🙏
You have mothered so many! Love you.
You are a mom to many feathered creatures. ❤️
Have a great day Mother Raptor!
Me too...animals need human moms too. Happy Mother’s Day
Also what is interesting to note is the way he avoids crossing the sea. You can clearly see where the longest route was, just to keep flying over land. Many species of birds spend their whole lives flying over the sea, but one thing is for sure, and that is that this eagle certainly avoided crossing the sea.
Nature is amazing! ... See MoreSee Less
That is incredible!
He cant feed when hes out on the sea and his feathers are probably not designed for big humidity and contant rains

Do you know the years he was tracked? Just curious if the conflict on the Ukraine border kept him from staying on that trek all those years. Seems it would have been an easy “over land” excursion.
That really cool. Sad to see that it it died but seems like a long life
Spring myst be your busiest time of year?
