Raptors are beautiful and intriguing creatures, the epitome of wildness and freedom; their very existence adds quality to our lives. These photos were taken of birds that are residents of The Raptor Trust. The Raptor Trust is one of the premier wild bird rehabilitation centers in the United States. It is recognized as a national leader in the fields of raptor conservation and avian rehabilitation. These birds have sustained injuries that make their release back into the wild impossible.
