Every day new patients arrive at our facility. In an effort to tell their story of survival and highlight the diverse number of species that we rehabilitate, we highlight a new patient each week. Some of these are individuals, others are orphaned siblings. As their cases progress - we will update the outcome - our hope is that many, many of these patients are released!

Over the past couple of weeks 4 Cooper's Hawks have arrived at Sarvey. They all were juveniles and injured by window strikes. Learning to fly at high speeds while catching smaller birds for a meal all while avoiding windows takes some skill. People can help these first year birds by keeping their blinds drawn during the day or putting decals on windows. One Cooper's hawk was released today and we hope the others will recover to be released soon. The one shown in the photo here is now outside, regaining strength and acclimating again to the outside world. Status - 3 released, 1 euthanized as the injury did not improve and permanent nerve damage was suspected.
