Last weekend I went to the Spring Raptor Release. A local Raptor Center takes in injured raptors from all over the world, rehabs them and when they are ready, the birds are released back into the wild. They also have resident birds that work as ambassadors for the public to learn about them. It was a fun day.
Did you know that songbirds migrate at night and use the stars as guides? Raptors migrate during the day so it is safer for songbirds at night. The raptors hunt with their eyes so need the daylight to see their prey.
