Ray B. witnessed a car strike of a red-tailed hawk on Friday afternoon near Columbia City. He rescued the hawk from a busy highway and after a few calls he was directed to Soarin’ Hawk. More than willing, he transported the hawk to the ICU. Kat received the hawk for evaluation. No major problems were found and the hawk was kept for observation.

04/10/2019 - This bird has been creance flying and has done so well that he is ready for release! In creance flying, a bird is tethered to one of our trainers and given progressively more line as he gets stronger and can fly farther. Tethering keeps birds safe, and allows them to gain flight strength while assuring that they can be retrieved as they train.
