The Kid Should See This

Releasing Rocky the eagle back into the wild

Eagle Valley Raptor Center cares for injured hawks, owls and eagles on 20 acres of land near Cheney, Kansas. In 2012, they cared for an eagle named Rocky, who was found injured and was healed at the center before being released. From the center’s site:

Since 1998 we have taken in on average over 100 birds a year due to injuries, poisoning or orphaned as babies. We felt the need to build a facility that not only would provide a place to care for these birds, but to offer an educational opportunity for schools, churches, scout groups, 4-H, seniors and other appropriate organizations to come and learn about these important species to our Kansas environment.
