Young bird of prey crashes into a window and then goes down to the ground!

Opublikowany 28 wrz 2020
This is our first Bird Of Prey rescue video and I am so happy I got to be there for the rescue, visit her during the rehabilitation, and all the way to the releasing back to the wild!
The American kestrel is the smallest and most common falcon in North America and I actually never got to meet one until that day - I didn't even know what she was, but our friends on Instagram knew to help me out with that: hopeforpawsrescue
I am so happy that one of our supporters sent us the special gloves for handling birds of prey... it's like they knew I would need those one day :-)

  • Great ... like always ! Thanks

  • I wish I had a credit card so I could do international payments :(

  • I tried to save a red-tailed hawk that had been hit by a car. I had been watching that bird for years. Once we got it to the raptor rescue, it was too far gone. Glad to see a place like this and know they are getting birds back out into the wild.

  • Oh how beautiful 🙏

  • Love you guys

  • Beautiful music, beautiful ending. Very cool to see a new type of animal saved on HFP.

  • I didn't realize how beautiful birds are until now

  • It was a thank you. You guys are great.

  • This should be called Hope For Claws :-)

  • Isn't it ironical that Hope for paws rescue animals by luring them by dead meat?

  • More like, Hope For Claws, amirite? ... I'll show myself out.

  • From hope for paws to hope for claws.

  • It probably was a great big thank you. Awesome.

  • For this episode, the name of the channel should be HOPE FOR CLAWS 🦅

  • Wow what an amazing place. There wete so many birds there.

  • I kept trying to tilt my phone to help lean and push the box toward the cage. Thks for doing this work.

  • I have ornithophobia, but I discovered the source. I'm not afraid of giant birds. I'm afraid of hummingbirds and sparrows and finches. Because my fear is that I will be startled and swat at them in a panic and kill them by accident because they're so tiny. I've cuddled a bunch of large parrots since then. Birds are cool. Still don't want one, but I'm not afraid of the big ones anymore.

  • When the words "injured raptor" appeared on the screen, did any1 else have a snap vision of a baby dinosaur under that box 🤣

  • So sweet. I can recognize a Kestrel male, but would have had trouble identifying the female. Nice that they released her into her "forever home." Hope she finds friends there.

  • I like how the bird was like acting like a mouse squeak

  • You all are absolutely amazing... The one's who call for your help, u, all the one's that help u & The ones that get them back to health and back to life A M A Z I N G ! ! !

  • he is so cute and scared

  • The abashed winter putatively fade because october steadily suffer concerning a watery community. four frail, busy basketball

  • Beautiful American Kestrel Bird and she speaks her mind, doesn't she. These ladies i admire.

  • ❤❤❤❤❤

  • Holy raptor, there are sure a lot of birds at that place. Where the hell did they all come from, and how long did it take to get so many there? Also, are many of those well enough for release?

  • The scream is ... oww and my sister is sleeping u gonna wake her up

  • ok wait but like owls are such weird animals

  • Eldad Hi, I'm waiting for your answer if you got my donation via PayPal????

  • Oh my so beautiful

  • That barn owl be vibin tho

  • When I was a kid my Dad hit and killed a Kestrel with his car. He had a taxidermist stuff him with dead mouse still in claws and placed it strategically on top of the TV, this was before remote controls, he knew we were scared out of our wits to go near this thing and therefore would not change the channels from football to cartoons, it worked, haunts me to this this day.

  • Beautiful ♥️

  • Barn owls look so different from all the other owls. Very fantasy-like

  • Freedom is powerful! It is always amazing to see those first few seconds of renewed freedom.

  • It was nice to see the bird's rescue side

  • That is the cutest bird I’ve ever seen in my life ❤️

  • 0,25X 👋👋🦉😁 Amei ♥️

  • she was so cute as a baby 😭

  • 😇😇

  • Heaven bless all the rescuers and veterinarians involved in saving the lives of animals across the globe. Also, the intro for this video is absolutely epic.

  • P L E A S E - donate to this organization and even if it’s five dollars. Imagine if all of these subscribers donated a dollar what a difference it could make.

  • For wild raptors, best to throw a towel over them. With LEATHER gloves, gently work a hand underneath until you can get it around BOTH lower legs or the ankle (' knee') joints. Then you can lift the bird. Try to keep the leg as straight as this makes it hard for them to grip on. Their feet are their primary weapons, control the feet and you control the bird. (I used to work for a zoo falconry and rehab program.)

  • She is such a beautiful bird and I'm just SO glad that she wasn't hurt! MUCH LOVE!!!

  • barn owls almost look like they have a mask on or something

  • Birb :3

  • Beautiful owl!

  • Poor baby was so scared! Wonderful people that collected her and then called you. Thank you Hope for Paws for doing what you do. Hero's

  • Awww 😍

  • I don't sleep by seeing that owl its 😨😨

  • I started crying when u were showing all the other birds around the rehabilitation center. Theyre all just so beautiful, this earth and all the animals on it are so beautiful, i wish humans would respect nature and animals more and take care of them like u guys do. The world would be a lot better place. I also love her call at the end after she was released 😭❤.

  • This was a cool rescue and that Barn Owl was so unusual and fascinating. HFP can literally rescue anybody 👍👍🦉

  • I want to be like you

  • Your the besd

  • It looks like a Porg! I love it

  • Qué bello 😍😍

  • I wanna donate but my mum will probably say no 😭😭😭😢😢🥺🥺🥺

  • Nether gone get it how someone can dislike this effort to help animals in destress!!!

  • Fly free, little one. The sky is your playground.

  • She's... So... CUTE

  • One night a owl crashed into my window my mom and dad saw the owl but me and my brother missed it to see the owl also does prey mean meat eating bird I forgot if prey means meat eating animal???????

  • 5:06 hitting a jig

  • When I was a kid I was at a bowl with my dad and sister also my step mom kids started crowding a tree do I went to see what happened a baby hawk had fallen out of the nest because the mom saw people around him she flew away and left we waited to see if she'd come back but she didn't so we took him home and made him a place in out big bathtub and after two days my dad took him to a bird rehabilitation center

  • I think the Great Horned Owl is the most beautiful owl 🖤

  • it's so satisfying to me, when the American Kestrel flew away

  • What did the first owl have round his ankles?

  • 5:07 damn that owl got some moves maybe he can teach me how to dance

  • It was good to know that the raptor was okay besides a little hungry and thirsty

  • What a wonderful place though :-)

  • Poor baby is so scared... :-(

  • It was wonderful to see all of the different birds at the wildlife refuge. I would never have had that opportunity otherwise! 💜💜💜

  • Omg I've been holding back tears with this and the last video.

  • I have Bird decals on my windows to help birds so they will not crash into any of my windows

  • What a Beautiful place. THANK YOU for this precious little girl

  • Yes, I heard it clearly...she said "Thank you!" ;-)

  • birb

  • She's such a beautiful bird!

  • how has covid has affected your rescues?

  • Personally, I'm afraid of birds, but seeing them socializing and being looked after by caring humans makes me feel a bit safer around them.

  • What a such wonderful story, thanks to you, Eldad, to good samaritans in the factory who called you and obviously to the ladies who are angels with wild birds too. I hope they will be helped and have some donations for their very good work. Thank you all of you🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • So cool

  • thank you

  • We get them over here in the UK (different species but more or less looks the same), one of the smallest birds of prey, so cute. Good job on the rescue, our Wildlife Aid would be proud!
