In the shade you’ll find birds of prey spreading their wings and eyeing you with uncanny intelligence. The birds on display, care of the Rocky Mountain Raptor program, are recovering birds or birds that cannot be released back into the wild. The raptors serve to educate and astound the public about their way of life. More than 80% of their treatable birds are released. The Rocky Mountain Raptor Program saves and rehabilitates these majestic birds.
