Today was my first day working at the Minnesota Raptor Center where I’ve joined a “flight crew”. Flight Crew is a program to help rehabilitate owls, hawks, vultures and eagles. Several times each week, birds are brought outdoors on tethers for some open flight time. I was able to real in and hold a small great horned owl on my first day.
Today we flew a Great Horned Owl, several Red-tails, a Rough-legged Hawk and a Golden Eagle. It was a great experience and one I’m looking forward to. More pictures from today.
