Birds of prey set free after rehabilitation

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Dave and Shauna O'Brien of Price were invited to release brother and sister hawks after the birds went through healing and training at Second Chance Wildlife Rehabilitation. The two young Red-Tail hawks made their way to Second Chance in Price from Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab. These siblings took an 80 foot fall from their nest high on a cliff side. Another sibling did not survive the fall. Second Chance was asked to take these two and teach them to kill prey successfully.  Young raptors learn these skills by sticking with their parents for various time frames, depending on the species.  If orphaned, it becomes the responsibility of the rehabilitator to intervene and ensure these youngsters learn what they need to in order to survive in the wild.
