Red-tailed Hawk Released Back to the Wild

“We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.  But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop” Mother Teresa.

One bird at a time…. the Kiawah Island Nature Program and the Avian Conservation Center work in concert to rescue, rehabilitate and re-release our native birds of prey.  The sound of the red-tailed hawk’s first wing beats as he leaves the confines of the carrier to perch on the arching branches of the ancient oaks is enough to make anyone appreciate that each individual bird is worth every effort.
