BENEFITING: Cascades Raptor Center
It's spring (finally) and the birds are singing - a first step to making babies! Baby raptors lose their parents in a number of ways, from falling out of a nest to having their nest destroyed - and need to come into our rehab clinic at Cascades Raptor Center. A full house of young barn owls (up to 10 mice/day each), great horned owls (up to 10 mice a day), red-tailed hawks (you get the picture), screech owls and kestrels (our typical mix) can lead to an extra food bill of $500/week ... that's 1000 mice a week, for weeks at a time! Please help us fill all those baby beaks.
