Makov Animal Rescue Center is located in the outskirts of Pisek, which is a town in the South Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. The Center was opened in 1993 by the Czech Union for Nature Conservation. It takes care of injured and sick wild animals, as well as of abandoned baby animals and provides first aid, veterinary treatment, rehabilitation and preparation for their release back to nature.
The Czech Republic lies on a kind of ornithological crossroads between northern and southern Europe where an interesting mix of birds breed. There are boreal species like Hazel Grouse, Ural Owl, Nutcracker and Fieldfare as well as "Mediterranean" species like Night Heron, Bee-eater and Hoopoe. All ten European woodpeckers are there, too and some rare owls. In South Bohemia birds are attracted to fish-ponds often enclosed in wooded landscapes where wildfowl pass through in numbers in spring and breeding birds include Red-crested Pochard.
Even the Prague area can be quite interesting with nests of sparrow hawks right in the city, while buzzards hunt in parks and breed in quite large numbers near the city centre.
The Saker falcon is one of the rarest bird species nesting in the Czech Republic.
