This dark morph rough-legged hawk was rescued from a corn field in Mackey, Indiana. Unable to fly but a few feet off the ground, we found that he had an old break in the wing that was already healed. […]
Sassafras aka “Sass” was found on the ground in Gibson County in the spring of 2019 as a youngster with a wing break that was too far healed improperly to be corrected. As a result, she is not flighted and cannot be released. Sass is currently in bootcamp with volunteer Regina getting comfortable on the glove so that she can join our educational programs in the future. Her name says it all, a typical sassy great horned owl!
Harley came to us in 2018 from a local falconer. In her first hunting season she exhibited some behavioral concerns that deemed her not a good candidate as a falconry bird. She is not native to our area, but […]
Jack came to us in the winter of 2017-18. It appears someone had shot him, as the vet found steel shot in several places in his body, he has lost an eye, and cannot fly. Look out for him along with our other raptor ambassadors in programs soon!
Grey was found on the side of the road with a severe concussion in 2017, presumably from a car collision. As a result she was left with eye damage and a broken wrist. She is almost flighted, but not enough to gain altitude to hunt properly. So she has joined our educational program team. ‘Though she be little she is fierce’ is the perfect quote for this little gal.
Hattie had a collision with a car in central Indiana in 2007. She damaged the tip of her left wing and now cannot gain altitude in flight. Hattie is named after Liz and Chris Hatton, rehabilitators that nurtured her back to health in north central Indiana. She was a haggard bird when she was injured, meaning old and set in her ways. She is our most fierce predator, yet she is a big turkey! You’ll find her perched at the top of her favorite ladder making an owl totem pole with her ‘mew’-mate Kat.
