All wild birds are protected by law. State and federal laws prohibit you from having any protected wildlife in your possession, even temporarily, unless you are transporting an injured raptor to receive medical attention.
Call the raptor emergency line at (970) 222-0322 to notify our rehabilitation staff.
While transporting an injured raptor:
- Speak quietly.
- Do not play your car radio.
- Do not transport a raptor in a person's lap, unboxed, or unrestrained. The bird could get loose and cause an accident or injury.
