They are doing this with the help of Hawk Watch International. There may be others involved, but I only know of HWI. I'm sure there are several factors involved, not just one. This isn't a result of the cyclical aspects of their prey either. Something else is going on. We will just keep doing our part with helping those that need rehabilitation in some way.
Our fundraiser went really well. I have such wonderful support from that area and Yrma, Dave and Sara really worked their butts off gathering support, donations and working on the event itself. We had many local artists support our work. I personally appreciate everyones work and support.
We hope she is successful in her life. She is a two year old bird, so clearly knows how to hunt and kill so we did not need to go through that step with her.
Thanks for checking in. I'll try to update again here soon, but we are right in the middle of busy season for all wildlife rehabilitators everywhere. Remember, please support your local wildlife rehabilitator. A call to your local State wildlife office will tell you who that is. We are professionals that spend our lives caring for our native wildlife.
