Most of the raptors seen in this album are either permanent residents, or they are being rehabilitated at the Ojai Raptor Center. In order for any of the birds at Ojai Raptor Center to be released into the wild they have to satisfy certain criteria. The requirements for their release are that they have to be able to fly, bank, and hunt. This center has created a very large aviary with a 90 degree turn allowing the animals to fly, bank and hunt. I will add more photos to this album in the next few days and weeks.

"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
