feed meThe Raptor Trust in Millington, NJ  is a wonderful place to visit and support. Owners and operators Len and Diane Soucy hosted us last Sunday on a return visit to this amazing place.  Over the past 40 years Len has taken in, rescued, rehabilitated, released or housed as education animals over 90,000 birds. He has managed to rehabilitate and release almost half that number. Within the 14 acres there is a state-of-the-art medical facilities, quality exterior housing for several hundred birds, and an education building. My good friends who run the Binky Foundation and I plan another visit in the fall when they release a red-tailed hawk in memory of our dear departed friend, Barbara Rosenthal.

I love the raptors!
I was at the Denver Zoo last Monday, but the baby zebra was being seen by the vet, and not by us. It is a wonderful zoo, with two grandnieces! Be well!
I am off to Hamburg, Copenhagen, Nice tomorrow night …. but I will be “on” iPad so : carry on!

Hi Judy,

These photos are wonderful! As you have seen, I love birds. I might just have to make trip to this place.

There is another similar place in Vermont, although I don’t think it’s quite the size of The Raptor Trust, and I think they only deal with raptors, but still very nice. It’s called the Vermont Institute for Natural Science (“VINS”). They get birds from all over the US that have been injured, they treat them and then, if possible, release them, and if not, find homes for them. It’s been a while since I’ve been there, so hopefully my information is correct. It might make a nice trip the next time you are up this way. It’s about 2 hours from North Andover.

Hope all is well – scratch for Benny!

Deb
