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.

What do you make of the recent reports of young owl attacks on dogs in Atlanta this week?

After it being so cold, they are very hungry and a small mammal is a small mammal.

She had a rough start, but she was a fighter.

The first orphaned hawk that ever stayed through the winter with me. Also the winter my beloved Mina died. It was as though Georgia remained behind to try to offer some solace to the grief that was headed my way..."Georgia" was a Red-shouldered hawk nestling whose nest was destroyed during the Mother's Day weekend tornadoes that swept through central in 2008. Some Geor...

Such a beautiful bird, sorry for your loss

Beautiful story. Mina's heart goes on. As does Georgia's. Heart energy always does.

Can anyone help me with an injured buzzard? He has a broken wing it seems. He’s unable to fly high so he sits on a branch. Other large birds are sitting and watching him. I’m really sad that he may be killed by the other birds and don’t know what to do. I live in Cumming Ga. Thanks in advance. Marion

aww Monteen I'm so sorry about your Mina....but perhaps you are right.....as to why the Hawk entered your life .....

I’m trying to donate but PayPal is not taking me to anything that would allow me to donate to you, it just takes me to my dashboard. Could I have your PayPal email address so that I can send some money?

Thank you! monteen@hawktalk.org is the email address associated with our charity bank account.

Having the same issue here.

Dang! How about going over to www.hawktalk.org and click on that donate button...

Done.

The Donate button on the left side works, the one under your photo header doesn't, just so others know to click the "Donate to HawkTalk" on the left side and it will take you to the HawkTalk PayPal area.

For future donation reference, go to the Watch and Donate Tab on the Left side of the page.

Gary D Wallis can you check on this?

I just fixed it.

The Donate Button of the top right you can use for mobile or desktop. The tab donate button is desktop only.

Done!

Done... ✅

Thanks, Gary D Wallis !

Check is in the mail

Monteen, you gotta' post that mailing address again for me. Please.

Happy "Hoot"adays!

Donated 💗

Done. Bless you, Monteen.

My yearly donation sent, I do miss Your owlendrs

Check with your tax assessor about getting some of your property tax exempted since you're a non-profit. You should be able to get a huge reduction.

Also there are auction sites (we do them for the corgi groups) that help out with expenses. People love buying unique things
