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!

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

This is one of the first hawks I ever cared for. A local TV crew had been out west filming an outdoors show and while on their way back to the airport, found what they thought was a dead Rough-legged hawk in a snowbank on the side of the road. They picked it up and put it in their van, I guess thinking they would be able to find a taxidermist to mount it.Not so fast.When he 'woke up', they stuffed him in a garment bag and smuggled him back to Atlanta where he landed at my vet's hospital where I was working. It was a great experience... Delta airlines shipped him for free up to New York for conditioning prior to release back up north! ... See MoreSee Less

The Golden Eagle hacking station at Pigeon Mountain late 80s. 

The most incredible time of my life.

See them fishing at Johnsons Crook routinely. And all along the Tennessee River. Great success.

Pigeon Mountain is a MOST enchanting destination — and most folks not from aroun’them parts don’t know to call it La-FAY-ette apart from LOUGH-e-ette. The topside overlook clearing offered sweeping views and neat campsite(s) steps away back in the late 90s, early 2000s. Plus the old mineshafts and rock outcrops/boulder fields up and down its rise and fall. EXCELLENT post conjuring many years and miles of mountain biking it!

Saw a Golden Eagle within a mile of that site Sunday. There is an active nest pair nearby also.

I met beautiful Sam about 1992/93 and Monteen when she was in to give an educational talk to an after school program. I was absolutely amazed at the magnificent bird and so impressed by his mom! I invited them to a couple schools I worked at. I often thought of Sam over the years and found Hawktalk on Facebook recently! So happy to see Monteen is still rescuing these amazing birds!

Awwwww! He is precious! ❤️poor baby, glad he is okay! Maybe it was Sam reincarnated to check on you!

He went to his happy place to escape the stress.

If he shuts his eyes, you'll go away!

Bless you for all you do for Gods creatures..❤️

Been hanging out with possums!

That's like me after work...

What do you call a bird who drinks too much? An owl-coholic!
