Abstract: 

This book is primarily written for the beginning bird handler who might be thinking of working with raptors in an educational setting such as nature centers, zoos, and parks. It may also be useful to the people who already have birds for educational purposes as well as falconers and researchers who are in need of a source of information on successful techniques for keeping raptors in captivity. The book's chapters include: Permits, Selecting a Bird, Diet, Housing, Equipment, Training, Transporting Raptors, Maintenance Care, Medical Care, and Your Bird Escaped! A very useful Appendix section on Federal and State Office contacts, Food Suppliers, Handling and Training Suppliers, Maintenance and Medical Suppliers, as well as a glossary and Index.
