Two recovered critters go back to the wild! But not at the exact same time or the exact same place!
In Mid December, Susan and Martin were called to check on a Red Tail Hawk near a busy road. The hawk had been struck by a car. With the help of the man who called, they located the Red Tail Hawk and Martin was able to scoop the hawk up.
Back at the rescue center, Martin examined the Hawk and found no broken bones. The Hawk was put in a chamber to recover. Five days later, after frequent checks and examinations, Martin determined the hawk was ready to return to the wild where she belongs.

From September, Susan and Martin out with Belle the Harris Hawk.
A Ferruginous Hawk arrived on October 8th. After an examine, Martin determined the hawk had an injury from getting stuck on a barb wire fence. Based on the condition of the hawk’s wing, it is likely the hawk managed to get free before extensive damage or breaks.
This hawk stayed at our rescue center just over three weeks to heal then was released up at the C-Overlook, a safe location to give the hawk some time to reorient himself and return safely back the wild.
Martin & Susan set a recovered young Red Tail Hawk free again back into the wild where she belongs.
