Thunder Eagle Wildlife is a Non Profit Charity 501c3 oganization. We are state and federally permitted by the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and the Federal Wildlife Service to provide care and treatment of injured, orphaned or displaced birds and small mammals. Our goal is to support nature's balance by compassionate care of wildlife, specializing in raptors (birds of prey) by working closely with our local conservation officers, animal shelters, vetererinary clinics and the public.
Education Programs: We provide an education program to the public based on local owls in Virginia. This includes a live presentation of several common Virginia owls "on glove" ( Eastern Screech Owls, Barred Owl and Great Horned Owl.) The program is suitable for all ages. Please contact us to schedule a program.

This week we had a very unusual visitor: a Common Nighthawk. This bird is a juvenile which came in with a broken knee joint and multiple wing injuries. It is very common in our area but it was the first one that we had seen.
The birds eat on the wing..basically scooping insects out of the air with their extremely large mouth.
As a 501C3 non profit all volunteer organization, donations to Thunder Eagle Wildlife are tax deductible.
