Birds of Prey

January 21, 2017

The non-profit rescue center for birds, A Place Called Hope in Killingworth, CT, showed off four of their resident birds to attendees at East Haddam Land Trust's annual meeting in January 2017. About 80 people learned about and had close-up looks at an American kestrel, and Eastern screech owl, a great horned owl, and a red-tailed hawk.

 

 

MkHai, an American kestrel, has a birth defect that would have prevented survival in the wild.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Snowball, an Eastern screech owl, was injured by flying into a vehicle along a road. This is a common injury among birds of prey.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amber, a Great Horned Owl, fell from the nest as a young bird and was kept by a human for months, leaving her unable to identify with another Great Horned Owl.

 

 

 

Spirit, a Red-tailed Hawk, is blind in one eye from a vehicle collision.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Place Called Hope dealt with about 500 birds last year. They rehabilitate those expected to survive after being released. Others they care for at their facility.

 

Many thanks to Ralph Chappell for capturing these great shots. To see more photos and some video of these great birds, visit East Haddam Land Trust's Facebook page.
