I visited the Ojai Raptor Center Open House to be able to photograph these magnificent birds. They were all very impressive up close and so well behaved. Unfortunately, each one of these birds have their own stories to tell on how they got to the center; none of which I would wish on any wild animal. But with the help of the dedicated men and women who volunteer their time to take care and rehabilitate these birds, they are all healthy and well. Since they can never be sent out to the wild, they serve as ambassadors in educating and informing the public about the birds we live with. If you are interested to know more, please visit the Ojai Raptor Center website and subscribe to their newsletter.
