Bruce, of Wild Birds Unlimited in Langley, arranged an opportunity for his customers to visit the Raptor Ranch in Abbotsford.
For two hours we got hear about the work they do, both voluntary and business. More importantly, we got to see, up close, some of the birds they work with; and, to hear their stories. Fantastic way to spend a Saturday morning.
Unfortunately, we didn't get to see them fly, as there were one or more wild raptors in the sky above. Check out the falcon staring skyward near the end of the photos (6th from the end). She was very nervous and watchful for most of the time she was out.
