    I saved a hawk today... yay!

    I had quite the adventure today at work... and it goes something like this.

    On our class nature hike we came across a hawk that seemed a little out of it...

    A coworker and I were able to walk right up to it, which was my first indication that something was not right... He watched us carefully as we continued on our way.

    An hour later we returned to school to see the hawk still in the same place... I then knew something was wrong.

    I dismissed my half day kids and got on the phone with a few different facilities only to be given the run around... when I finally decided to call our local bird sanctuary for advice.

    A kind lady on the phone advised me that unfortunately Ottawa does not have a rescue team for cases like this. They really only rely on the public to help by bringing in birds in need of medical attention.

    She gave me 2 options... one was to approach the bird with a blanket and carefully cover it, then I was to place it in a box and bring it to them. Or option 2... let nature take its course...being the animal lover that I am I couldn't just do nothing.

    But also being scared of this giant bird... I knew I couldn't take this rescue mission on by myself. I ask my friend and coworker Robyn to help out... she gladly accepted.

    Together we managed to get this hawk in the box successfully... however we did look like a couple of freaks out for a photo shoot... we just had to take pics to prove we actually did this lol... oh well, our other coworkers had a good laugh at our expense.

    Robyn and I then took our new friend to the bird sanctuary... We get to call in a few days to see how he's doing.

    Boy do I feel good about todays little rescue mission... Karma points for me... yay!!


    Here's some pics for ya...

    WTG! What a great thing to do for the bird.

    I wonder what the bird was thinking? "Here I am in obvious trouble and your posing to take pictures near me? You guys suck!"

    Poor little thing. He went out for a while, trying to get away from Mrs. Hawk and tash and her friend kidnapped him. They didn't ask him permission to take him away and now he's in some womans dinner table making his best impression of a chickaen.
