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.

Here’s what we have going at Facebook

New patient in the house. Osprey 091917

These guys can present with fish hooks, fractures, lead poisoning and neurological issues from some type of flagellate they have come into contact with in the water, along with starvation and parasites.

The birds shoulders are even and both wings work and she is standing on both feet, although she appears weak and a bit wobbly so there doesn't appear to be any fractures. She's well fleshed out, so I know it's not starvation.

She seems to be slightly favoring her right leg and there is a minor abrasion on the medial aspect of that leg. She's definitely weak. I'll do supporting therapy until I can get her in to see my vet...youtube.com

Hurricane victim possibly?

Anything is possible, but according to the Good Samaritan, this bird is a resident of her lake. Lucky duck!

She's beautiful! Hope she's back out on the lake before too long...

The irony of that bird is that two years ago an Osprey that looks just like that one (maybe the same one) tried to steel a young hawk from its nest. I got to watch it all unfold right in front of me and 50' from where your current Osprey was found. The Osprey swooped down and grabbed the baby hawk from its nest and took off but couldn't get lift. I assumed the rather large pre-flight hawk was just to heavy so the Osprey dropped it about 3' from the ground. The little hawk seemed un-hurt and the parents returned and could do nothing for the bird. A call to DNR and a call to a vet and little guy went to a rehab center and was eventually released some where on the Chatahoochee river.

They are mean.

She'll chew his little hade off when she's done having her way... 🙂

Love the Praying Mantis. I used to see these all the time as a kid...not so much anymore. 🙁

Here is a shot of a mating pair by my front door. 'Get a room, you two!" Giving me that nonchalant look...

Beautiful...the light is amazing

I got lucky...
