Publication Date: 1998-05-01
Children get a peek at the workings of the Vermont Raptor Center, where orphaned or injured birds of prey, ranging from owls to eagles, are nurtured back to health and, if able, are released back into the wild. Hannah, a capable, conscientious 16-year-old, leads a behind-the-scenes tour, fielding questions from a school group and demonstrating the feeding and care of the birds. Informative sidebars fill in the blanks in this accessible and enjoyable resource, which is full of color photos picturing the birds and their caretakers.
