The Raptor Center’s medical services treat approximately 700 raptors each year, provides training in avian medicine and surgery for veterinarians from around the world, and identifies emerging issues related to raptor health and populations. For the calendar year 2013, we received 914 wild birds, along with 21 raptors used in education programs or in the sport of falconry.  (See our breakdown for 2013 below the weekly census.)

We have received 730 wild patients so far in 2014.  We currently have 53 patients.   Some are in individual patient cages while their injuries heal.  Others are in large flight rooms or in managed areas for exercise before their release. The following table shows the patient census by species:
