Setting Records and Finding Homes
We are always disappointed when we cannot heal an injured raptor to the point that it can be returned to the wild. But this is an exciting time for Soarin' Hawk as we have been able to find homes for a record number of birds already this year - 9! In 2018 so far we have found homes for birds as close as the Blandford Nature Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan and as far away as the Phoenix Zoo! Other placements this year are: the Talon Trust in Evansville, Indiana; the Louisville Zoo; the St. Louis Zoo; Brookgreen Gardens and Zoo in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina; and the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Maryland. So far we have placed one Red Tailed Hawk, and 8 screech owls (including red and grey phase)! We wish the birds well as they become ambassadors for education in their new homes!
