  4. Hello, the Born To Be Wild Nature Center in Bradford, RI is in need of a falconer to fly and evaluate a Peregrine Falcon rescued in Providence. It is 1st year tiercel who has been rescued twice. We need someone familiar with Peregrine flight and behavior to offer his/her opinion of setting this bird free. We are a state and federally licensed raptor rehabilitation center. Thank you for any advice on this falcon.

    Hi. We live in Middleton, MA and have a Hawk’s nest (in a bush) that has eggs and one has hatched. I can provide a picture. Is there a way to have them removed/relocated? I’m concerned as I have a very small (3 lb) dog. Thanks. Marty

    Hello, I live in Clinton, MA and I have begun the hobby of backyard chickens. It seems as tho they have attracted a few Cooper’s Hawks. I have read that some towns or orginazations will aid in reloacation. Any information would be beneficial. Thank you.
