Photographing Raptors Turns into a Labor of Love

LAGRANGE — I’ve always been fascinated by raptors. Big birds, birds of prey — eagles, owls, hawks, falcons, and peregrines — just to name a few. But it wasn’t until a chance meeting with three Soarin’ Hawk Raptor Rehab volunteers that I got a chance to work with those birds. And that collaboration has produced a calendar for 2021 featuring photos of its birds. Soarin’ Hawk is a Huntertown-based organization that rescues and rehabilitates injured and orphaned birds around the northeast quarter of Indiana, as well as southwest Michigan and northwest Ohio. Each year, Soarin’ Hawk team members...Read more

Soarin' Hawk Goes Back to School!

This fall, as students return to schools everywhere, it’s time for our volunteers to go to school too. But not just any school. They’re going to RAPTOR SCHOOL! Carolina Raptor Center, the premier raptor center in the United States, is offering three classes that will cover important aspects of rehabilitating raptors. Can you help us send some of our volunteers to this vital training? If you are able, please donate here: https://donorbox.org/back-to-school-15Read more

Red-Tailed Hawk 04102020 Returns to Her Old Hunting Grounds

This Hawk was initially found on April 10th and treated by a rehabber in Rochester, IN that is affiliated with Soarin' Hawk. She felt it needed x-rays and an examination by our veterinarian. It was brought to us on April 13th. The x-rays and examination revealed a broken left humerus. Our veterinarian pinned the bone on April 14th. After several days of pain meds and antibiotics, followed by physical therapy, then practice flying, this beautiful hawk was ready to go home. She was released where she was found, and - as you will see in the video - was anxious and excited to get back home.Read more

IF YOU FIND A BABY BIRD...

Nesting Season is the busiest time of year at any wildlife rehabilitation or rescue center. Not only does the number of patients increase, but the amount of care that is needed for each patient increases. Some baby birds need to be fed every 30 -45 minutes from dusk until dawn. This is an important time of year for rehabilitation but also for education. Read More- Click HereRead more

First peregrine hatchling of 2020!

Jamie and Moxie's first egg hatched at about 1:15 today (4-22-20)!Read more

Oh happy day! Chick #2!

We have our second peregrine chick of 2020! The second egg hatched today at about 6pm. It has been a long 39 days since the first egg was laid. The new baby is very tired right now. Birds have an ‘egg tooth’ on their beak, which they use to work away at the inside of the shell until it breaks apart. It's a very exhausting process! The tooth will eventually fall off as the chick grows. Moxie will start to feed the chick soon, and the other two eggs should hatch in a few days.Read more

We have eggs 3 & 4!

... and, suddenly, there are 4! Moxie laid her 3d and 4th eggs sometime between March 16th and the 21st. Falcons typically lay between 2 and 4 eggs, and the incubation period averages about 33 days. The female does most (about 2/3) of the incubating, but the male will take over while mom goes for food. Keep watching! https://www.indianamichiganpower.com/environment/FalconCam/Read more
