Educational Bird

U.P. Raptor Rehabilitation Center holds an education license to keep Raptors that are too injured to be released for educational purposes. This bird was on display at the center's booth at the U.P. State Fair in Escanaba, Michigan. Disclaimer: The rescued raptors shown here were suffering from varied ailments. I rescued them as part of my professional duties. Please check with your individual state and the federal government for rules and regulations regarding raptor rescue. All raptors that I have rescued were turned over to a Federal and State Licensed Raptor Rehabilitation Center for their rehabilitation and release.
