Bird rehab group educates public on hawks and falcons

It was a packed house at Science Central Friday April 3, 2015, for a presentation titled 'Birds of Prey.'

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Soarin’ Hawk Raptor Rehab was at Science Central Friday talking about conservation and various species of owls, hawks and falcons.

Birds of Prey was an educational event presented by Soarin’ Hawk Raptor Rehab that focused on habitat and species preservation and the relationship between birds and humans.

The organization takes in injured or orphaned birds of prey, treats them and prepares them to be released into the wild. The birds that are non-releasable are brought to various educational events.

“A lot of people live in cities don’t get to see some of the birds,” Bob Alton with the Soarin’ Hawk Report Rehab said. “People think these birds don’t exist in the cities… But we have a variety of birds out there hunting because there is food here.”

Soarin’ Hawks Raptor Rehab severs nine counties in Northeast Indiana.
