Expansion takes wing
A live tree is incorporated into an open rehabilitation area for birds of prey at the Wild Bird Rescue area in Wichita Falls Tx.
"Up until now they've had to send raptors to South Plains Wildlife Rehabilitation in Lubbock, but this will allow them to work with them on site"
They will have a 50-foot aviary where they can fly and grow stronger."
A great horned owl is seen in a rehabilitation area of the Wild Bird Rescue center. More than $100,000 in grants have allowed them to build additional area for rescued birds.
Funds for the expansion came from Wild Bird Rescue's 2011 capital campaign plus grants from the Priddy Foundation, Perkins-Prothro Foundation, J.S. Bridwell Foundation and the city's 4B tax board.
