TRC Clinic Patient Census August 19

A bald eagle patient.
The Raptor Center has received 625 patients so far this year.  We currently have 94 patients.  Some are in individual patient cages while their injuries heal.  Others are in large flight rooms or outside in the rehabilitation courtyard for exercise before their release. 

We'd like to thank all of you who either take time to bring in the sick and injured birds you find, or let us know so we can coordinate transport to our clinic for these patients.  Since this is such an incredibly busy time, we hope you will understand that if you call to inquire about a patient you helped rescue, it may take us a little bit to get back to you.  We know you will understand that our priority has to be the injured birds we have, as well as the others we are trying to get here to help.  

Your gifts to support us give hope to all our patients.

The following table shows the patient census by species:
