Harvey the Hurricane Hawk Released!

Harvey the Hurricane Hawk, a juvenile Cooper’s Hawk that was rescued by a good Samaritan in Houston arrived at BPRC for final flight rehabilitation and was released last week. Harvey, actually a female, flew into a cab during the storm and wouldn’t leave. Mr Bruso took the bird home and fed it until the staff at Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Coalition could pick her up. She was given a full exam and appeared to have some flight issues. She was brought to BPRC for final exercise before release. If you would like to help pay for the care of Harvey, please go to our donation page, http://www.bpraptorcenter.org/donations/   She has had a speedy recovery was released at Oak Point Park. Thanks to all the great work by TWRC in Houston and everyone involved in Harvey’s return to the wild.  Photos by Keith Brown Photography. Check out Harvey click here.
