A group of residents from Oak Park Senior Living visited The Raptor Center. We were able to learn about raptors and saw several up close and personal. All the birds at the center were found injured in the wild. The veterinarians at the University of Minnesota work to repair all injuries so that they can return to their native habitat. Unfortunately, some of their injuries prevent this from happening, so the birds become ambassadors! This allows us to see these magnificent birds up close. The residents were amazed at how large some of the raptors were, especially the bald eagle.
