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.

Her mind is fine, but her body no longer wants to cooperate due to advanced MS. Her husband is also in a wheelchair now because he's lost circulation in his right foot; his toes are black and they're getting ready to have to amputate below the knee.

Her MS is worsening and she's falling out of her chair often, so often now that they were embarrassed to call 911 AGAIN - the 4th time this week, so they called me. It's not the first time I've gotten her back up, but this was definitely the hardest.

I found her in a crumpled heap between the shower stall and the toilet. It took forever to find the 'belt', a wide woven thing to put around her waist to help get her up on her knees so she could help me drag her forward onto the wheelchair, then get her turned around. She usually has jeans on and I can grab the belt loops to hoist her up, but not this time.

These people aren't old. She's 4 years older than me and I think her husband is close to 70. He used to be so vibrant and chatty - would help me tinker with the lawn mower so I wouldn't have to spend money to take it somewhere. *sigh*

Whatever god you pray to, be thankful that today, you are whole; you can arise from your chair and walk across the room or down steps. It's the simple things that we take for granted.

I'm glad I was there to help.

So sorry for this couple and thankful you have a helping heart. Do they have any family?

You should take great comfort and pride in knowing these people realize you can depend on you. Be proud

This makes me sad and thankful at the same time. Sad for their particular situation but thankful they have you in their life. ♥️

Hugs good thoughts and prayers. So sorry. They are both lucky to have you to call on

Amen. Thankful that they have dear friends such as you <3

Bless youπŸ™


Please tell them not to be embarrassed to call 911. Public safety officers/dispatchers do what they do because they want to help

Just a suggestion to rehabbers of a particular discipline. Don't go out of your wheelhouse. Get the bird to someone who understands how they are put together.

As a rehabber of raptors, I know NOTHING about deer and would never in a million years examine one because I don't know anything about their physiology.

That 'pop' you heard when you were palpating the wing? That was YOU, fracturing the bone.

The bird had to be euthanized.

Thanks a pant load.

Amen Sister!

“First, do no harm......” I’m a nurse and I’ve had basic raptor training for volunteer work and it’s GENTLE assessment. Your eyes work better than your hands sometimes! And another human nurse lesson....watch your patient! Ugh! But I have learned LOADS from all your videos! Like injecting mice with fluids to help rehydrate......nothing beats hands on but your videos often help me answer questions people ask too. You’ve been my inspiration!

"Wannabe's" have a way of fouling up sooooooo much stuff. LISTEN TO MONTINE, you wannabe's, she knows what she's doing. I've watched her for years and I do not contribute my money to bums...she's the BOSS with those birds. Learn it. πŸ‘πŸ‘

Oh geez, I’m sorry - That you were on the receiving end of a case like that and for the bird. What is the saying? A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
