MOBILE FLIGHT ENCLOSURE

Hacking doors

This enclosure is so unique! One of the coolest features is the two “hacking doors”. Hacking is a release method that helps young birds of prey reach their hunting potential by giving them exercise and experience in a safe controlled setting.

UNIQUE FEATURE

Building skills & strength

Most often, birds hone their skills and are fed in the enclosure in the environment they will be released in. Once the birds are to a certain skill level, the enclosure doors are open to let the birds fly free. Supplemental feedings are still provided to the birds in the enclosure until they no longer need the help. Generally, it is agreed that hacked birds are more successful once released.

Recuperating our feathered friends

The Nest, as it’s been nicknamed is a first-of-its-kind mobile flight enclosure. We used imagination and invention to take wildlife rehabilitation in a new direction. In this space, injured, orphaned and ill birds can build endurance, strengthen muscles and hone survival skills prior to being reintroduced into their native ecosystems.
