Joined TRC Team: June 2016
Rayne joined TRC's avian ambassador team in late June of 2016. She was injured in central Alabama and treated at the Alabama Wildlife Center in Pelham. We are unsure whether a car or window is to blame, but either way, the head trauma sustained in a collision left Rayne blind in her left eye. Unable to return to the wild, Rayne's new job is to teach and help us appreciate the roles that raptors play in the ecosystem, no matter how small they are! Rayne was named after in honor of Meg and Burt Raynes, two treasured conservationists of the Jackson Hole community.
