From the clinic
“Light as a feather” is a phrase often used to describe something light and insubstantial. Feathers may be lightweight, but they’re anything but insubstantial.
Some patients require a bit more time to heal than others. First arriving in October of 2020 with all his flight feathers singed, this male peregrine falcon had to molt and regrow a whole new set. He was able to return back to the wild September of 2021.
The Raptor Center (TRC) provides two, one-year internship training programs for postgraduate veterinary professionals interested in advancing their skills in avian and wildlife medicine.
March was a busy month in our clinic and things won't slow down anytime soon. We released 26 birds back to the wild this month. See a collection of these raptors in our slideshow.
