Birds of Prey Northwest Helps Rehabilitate Injured Birds
ST MARIES, Idaho (AP) — Dozens of eagles in northern Idaho receive valuable care in a volunteer-run nonprofit designed to promote raptor conservation and stewardship.
The Coeur d'Alene Press reports that the Birds of Prey Northwest is currently housing a record amount of golden and bald eagles. Raptor biologist Janie Veltkamp says that the nonprofit typically sees three to six raptors come through in a year, but this year volunteers have already taken in three at the facility.
Birds of Prey is permitted through the U.S. Fish and Wildfire Service. Birds are allowed to be at the facility for educational purposes, rehabilitation or falconry.
