Four Hawk Stories

And all four have happy endings!

This video includes short tales of four hawks: two Swainson’s Hawks and two Cooper’s Hawks.

In story one, Martin captures a healthy recovered Swainson’s Hawk from one of the rehabilitation chambers. The Hawk is healthy and ready to return back to the wild where he belongs.

This release had some urgency to it in that the Swainson’s Hawks were due to begin their migration.

The same urgency held for release of hawk number two. Both were this year’s young and after a recovery have their second chance to make in the wild.

Both Cooper’s Hawks in the video were caught after a big meal. The first helped himself to a pigeon in Martin’s yard. The second captured sparrows in someone’s front yard.

After a quick check over to make sure they hadn’t injured themselves, Martin set them free.
