I just started volunteering at the stanislaus wildlife care center. As I was hosing down cages and carrying a platter of more unfortunate animal parts, I took out my camera and took some very shoddy videos. On this beautiful day I got to work with some of the resident raptors. These birds cannot be released into the wild so they will live the rest of their lives at the SWCC. They do occasionally go to schools to teach children about nature and wildlife (not to earn their BA's:)
This guy's name is Hopper, I think someone said he's lived here for over 10 years!
