Our raptors are fed an enriched diet of mice, rats, rabbit, quail and an assortment of other yummy treats. We buy our food because it is the best way to ensure quality, purity and variety. When we have eagles in house, we may accept fresh fish. We will keep you posted when we have special food needs. Mostly, we need help paying for the food we buy. Be sure to sign up for our email blasts so you can be invited to raptor releases or contacted when we need a raptor chauffeur. It also helps if you "like" and "share" our social media posts. There are many ways you can make a difference.
In the near future, we will add an option to "Adopt A Raptor". It is a great way to sponsor birds and makes a great gift idea. When you 'adopt' a raptor, you will receive a beautiful photo of the bird you adopt plus a super cool personalized adoption certificate and a write-up about this bird's story......all of this AND a tax deductible receipt for your support! We're not ready yet so, for now, please help us get started with a donation.
Adopt a Raptor is not quite ready to go live so please check back in the near future.

This is a Great Horned Owl. With its long, earlike tufts, intimidating yellow-eyed stare, and deep hooting voice, the Great Horned Owl is the quintessential owl of storybooks. This powerful predator can take down birds and mammals even larger than itself, but it also dines on daintier fare such as tiny scorpions, mice, and frogs.
