Sarvey Wildlife's Educational Raptors

All of the birds of prey shown here are permanent residents at the center. While our mission is Rescue, Rehabilitate, Release - sometimes birds are not suitable for release. Discussions and decisions are made in cooperation with USFWS (United States Fish and Wildlife Service) and if it is determined that a bird could become part of a glove-trained or static display, these birds may be placed with our facility or another similar program elsewhere in the country. Meet the feathered members of Sarvey's Educational Team and learn a bit more why they are here and when they came to us.

Freedom HanbliOkinyan cropped Freedom - a Bald Eagle arrived at Sarvey in 1998. Permanent wing damage left her unable to fly.  

Cetan Cropped Cetan - a Red Tailed hawk has been at Sarvey since 1995. A permanently damaged wing was amputated and she cannot fly.  RETIRED, No longer on display. 

Canowicakte 1 cropped Canowicakte - a Great Horned owl arrived at Sarvey in 1997. She has a damaged wing and is non-releasable.  RETIRED, No longer on display. 

TUVU 1 Aura - a Turkey vulture who came to Sarvey as a juvenile in 2011. She had a follicle condition that never improved and is unable to grow the feathers necessary to sustain flight. She is smart and curious and especially loves the morning sunrises that hit her enclosure.  

All of the migratory birds and eagles housed at Sarvey Wildlife Care Center (SWCC) are used with permission and under strict compliance of the permits granted to us by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS).
