What is a Raptor?
Hawks, Eagles, Vultures, Ospreys, and Owls are all raptors or birds of prey.
They are considered the carnivores of the avian world. Their hooked, sharp beak is ideal for tearing their food into bite size pieces. With exception of the Vultures, all have strong taloned feet to grasp their prey. The raptors keen eyesight and acute hearing make them all excellent hunters.
Each year BCRR treats a variety of raptors that have been orphaned or injured mostly due to man.
