Rehabilitators are often challenged with recognizing the species of a young raptor dropped off on their doorsteps. To successfully re-nest, foster, or raise a young raptor in captivity, you need to correctly identify it. This course takes the guesswork out of identifying young raptors by providing you with the specific distinguishing characteristics of the nestlings and fledglings of the most commonly admitted species.

This self study is worth 0.75 self-reported continuing education credit.
