Can You See Me Now?
Wildlife rehabilitator Brie ordered some new clothes this week. Her fashionable camo attire will help the Wildlife Center staff and students while they are feeding young raptors. Baby birds imprint on their caregivers and identify with that species for life; it's important that humans disguise their faces while feeding young birds. Brie demonstrated the new outfit for us (and her "baby owl"). Baby raptor season could start this month-- the first baby raptors we admit this year would likely be Great Horned Owlets.
