We need Mouse Money!

You can also help out by visiting smile.amazon.com.Β  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.Β  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.Β  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.

Dear P.L. - Thank you for the donation! I don't know how to get in touch except via messenger on your page and HERE since I know you follow our page.

HOLY COW!!!!!!!!! I burst into tears in the post office just now when I opened your donation. We've lost a third of our monthly Mouse Money donations since all this mess started, so I can't tell you how much this helps us.

We never shut down and along with 'normal' calls this time of year, we're also fielding calls from the two public facilities near Atlanta that aren't doing intake because they won't allow volunteers back on site yet. I'm losing my mind over here but I'm just putting one foot in front of the other and going through lots of mice. Thanks again!!!

You're so very welcome. I know you've been burdened with a lot of extra birds this spring and they need food.

It's easy to set up the operant conditioning technique to call young in for food post release.

Throughout the CD-19 - we never closed and have been taking calls and cases from the two public facilities in the Atlanta area that have remained in lockdown - If you would like to contribute to our charity, please chick on www.hawktalk.org and press the 'donate' button to taken to a secure PayPal site for us, or mail a check to - HawkTalk - P.O.

This poor dear is broken in two...can't stand, so prob fx pelvis, compound fracture at the joint that can't be repaired sufficiently to hope for release. All but one tail feather yanked out. If the follicles were traumatized, the new feathers corkscrew in. He's a mess.

Shout out to Richard's Pet Ambulance for providing transport.

The poor dear passed away just a few minutes ago. Never moved from the position I put him in. πŸ™

Sorry about his loss, but at least you were able to make him a bit more comfortable. 😒 On the good news front, I was serenaded around dawn Saturday morning by two or more Barred Owls. Delightful cacophony. πŸ’•

Poor sweet baby. At least God placed him somewhere safe and warm where he got loving care before he passed......

I’m so sorry. But thank you for making him safe and as comfortable as you could.

Could he make an education bird.

It is why places like yours exist - comforting God's creatures until He calls them back home.

How did he get so hurt?

Bless his little heart. Hope he didnt suffer too much.

that's not a litany for a good prognosis. 😒

Poor baby...at least now there's peace.

Prayers

Aw. So sorry
