Green Chimneys’ renowned Farm & Wildlife Center is home to over 300 animals, including 50 birds of prey. An Andean condor; numerous hawks, falcons and owls; and several crows are under the care of expert wildlife staff. Spring always brings large numbers of fledgling birds that need care, and the goal is to return them to the wild as soon as possible. The students of the Green Chimneys School have some special needs of their own and through the rehabilitation and care of these animals, they learn compassion, encouragement, and the true meaning of stewardship.

Featured Image: The Ferruginous Hawk, known for its rust-colored feathers which extend to its talons, is found across open grasslands and prairies in the American West. With a wingspan of about four and a half feet, it is the largest species of hawk in North America. Because of their size and color, they are sometimes confused with Golden Eagles, which are actually much bigger.

The female Ferruginous Hawk that calls Green Chimneys home retired from a falconer on Long Island. This species can work with falconers but due to its limited native range, it’s not traditionally used outside of the United States. The Ferruginous Hawk hunts using several techniques: flying low to the ground at high speeds, soaring high above, or hovering and then swooping down to catch prey.
