Molting at The Raptor Center

Casper the red-tailed hawk.

Gladdie the bald eagle.
There are three main activities in which raptors (and all birds) spend large amounts of energy in an annual cycle; migration (or some type of seasonal movement), raising families, and molting. 

Molting, which is replacing old feathers with new, is an activity that is well underway at The Raptor Center.  Here are a few pics of some of our education birds.
