Mo, the great horned owl

I’ve always been enamored with raptors in general, the whole world of birds of prey, our eagles, hawks, owls and more. And I’ve always wondered how I might actually be able to work with them in a kind of rescue setting. Since they are federally protected birds there are stringent standards for their care in captivity.

I happily discovered our very own Raptor Center at the Veterinary school at the University of Missouri. So I’m a volunteer in training. There is much, much to learn. But I like it already. In fact, I find myself in raptor attention.

    Cool! I also like raptors of Missouri, but find identifying all the different species of hawks daunting. I saw two fully mature bald eagles next to seven trumpeter swans on Sunday!!
