Resident Raptors

At TRC, we care for ten raptors that are our permanent residents. These birds can't be released back to the wild because of injuries they have sustained that would prevent them from being successful hunters, or because they are not native to the United States and were bred in captivity. They serve as ambassadors for their species, allowing visitors a unique learning experience. Let’s meet TRC’s feathered crew:
