Raptor Rendezvous: The Annual Indiana Raptor Center Fundraiser Event

I want to share information about a great event! The Indiana Raptor Center is located in Brown County, Indiana. They devote their lives to the care and rehabilitation of injured and ill raptors. The IRC also educates the public about the importance of these magnificent birds and their lives. Much time and money is spent 24/7-- 365 days a week caring for their residents of owls, hawks, eagles, falcons, and vultures.

I want to encourage readers to attend this event and if you can't . . . donate money or supplies to the cause! Here is the info--

This is Elmo--Barred Owl. I photographed him at an event.
