Why is this? Many young raptors are just starting to leave their nests. They are encountering disease, structures such as windows and buildings, starvation, and other difficulties that challenge all wild birds.
Will you please consider helping us with their food and medical care "bills?" A gift in any amount will help us continue be there for these birds that we all enjoy and value so much.
