About Suzie Gilbert

I live in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley with my two teenagers and have been rehabbing birds for over twenty years. I’ve written a memoir about the slippery slope all rehabbers eventually slide down, called “Flyaway: How a Wild Bird Rehabber Sought Adventure and Found Her Wings,” published in 2009 by HarperCollins; as well as a children’s book, “Hawk Hill,” published by Chronicle Books.

I also write for newspapers, blogs, corporations, etc. etc. For more detail, please see my website: www.suziegilbert.com

    What a great idea for a website,Suzie! I bought your book a couple of years ago and as a federally-licensed wild bird rehabilitator,I could totally understand everything the chaos these little darlings can cause in our lives.Thank you for allowing a window to the public on the lives we lead as rehabilitators.

    This is a great idea! I am a novice wild bird rehabber and have questioned my own sanity on numerous occasions since taking on this new challenge. Then I read your book…now I am just comforted in knowing that there are other people who are just as nuts as I am…heehee.
    Honestly though, I really enjoyed your book! I laughed my *** off when I read the woodchuck bit. How’s that for a teaser? Now you all have to go out and read the book so you can find out what I mean. Haha!

    Fantastic book! “Flyaway” is a great read even for a novice like me.

    Love love love this! I am a migratory bird rehabber in n.c. We are a bit different arent we??? It is so worth it when I release a bird back to where it belongs!

    Thanks, everybody! I think questioning your sanity goes with the territory … but if we’re lucky, we have some left to question.

    I’m trying to get in touch with Suzie Gilbert. My name is Christopher Pellettiere and I recovered a baby Redtailed Hawk. Mrs Gilbert rehabilitated and released two Redtailed Hawks in my backyard. Its beed five years later and I’m seeing Hawks in my backyard. I was wondering if they could possibly be the Hawks she released

    Suzie, I started your book a few nights go and am enjoying it immensely. I am already several head nods, head shakes, chuckles, and “uh huh”s along. Thank you for sharing your your journey.
